A few government programs are beginning to recognize the importance of the community, both as a source of capital and as the appropriate level for decision-making and accountability. But government programs come and go. This article profiles 22 alternative initiatives in community investment (or 'development finance') that are less dependent on government programming: Colville Investments, Dana Naye Ventures, Bread and Roses Credit Union, VanCity Credit Union, Women's World Finance, Montreal Community Loan Association, the Mennonite Micro-Enterprise Program, Québec's Worker Solidarity Fund, Crocus Investment Fund, Cape Breton Labourer's Development Company, the Canadian Alternative Investment Co-op, and the Centre for Community Enterprise.
