Inner City Renovation (ICR) is a much-heralded social enterprise in Winnipeg’s North End which has become an example of the potential for social enterprises to support people living on society’s margins and engage them in a productive livelihood. This book, written by former ICR general manager and board member Marty Donkervoort, documents the impacts this social enterprise has had on its employees and the community and reflects on the capacity of social enterprises as an alternative to corporate capitalist enterprises.

”This book gives an insight into personal leadership, enterprising solutions and value creation, making it as relevant to practitioners engaged in social enterprise, urban regeneration and community empowerment as it is to policy makers and students with an interest in social responsibility.”     — Gerry Higgins, Founder, Social Enterprise World Forum

Marty Donkervoort is a leader in community economic development, a past director of the Canadian Worker Co-op Federation and the Worker Ownership Development Foundation, and a founding member of the Social Enterprise Council of Canada.
