ANSER/ARES is a dynamic and growing association that is organizing its eleventh annual conference as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Our conference this year will be taking place on May 30, 31 and June 1, 2018.

ANSER/ARES brings together leading academic researchers, students, practitioners, consultants, policymakers and community organizations from Canada and internationally to discuss current and emergent issues, debates and challenges in the fields of civil society, social economy, and nonprofit research and practice.

Join us for what promises to be an engaging and provocative conference. The theme for the eleventh conference at University of Regina is: Nonprofits and the Social Economy - Gathering Diversities. The conference is an opportunity to welcome and explore the power of ideas to connect people and communities, encourage discussions and debates and to create knowledge and change. Within this context, nonprofits and other social economy organizations are well poised to lead these discussions. Join us for a stimulating time in the beautiful prairie region of Canada, land of the living skies and traditional home of numerous Indigenous Peoples.
