Social Purchasing – Buying Locally, Helping Locally

David LePage, CEO of Fast Track to Employment - a partner in the Social Purchasing Portal (SPP), wrote Social Purchasing – Buying Locally, Helping Locally for The Caledon Institute of Social Policy.

David's monograph describes an innovative internet gateway that is allowing businesses in Vancouver to make purchases on the basis of price, value, quality and social value. The SPP seeks to blend corporate social responsibility with community economic development.

The Caledon Institute is a social policy think tank established in 1992, as a private, nonprofit organization with charitable status. It is supported primarily by the Maytree Foundation.
