One Sky is a resource centre dedicated to assisting those struggling for social change by providing development education resources on a wide variety of topics. One Sky has developed a comprhensive information storage system, an extensive periodicals library, files with materials on multinational corporations and native issues, and audio-visual materials. Materials on Latin America, clipped from 100 sources, are organized by country as well as by topic--examples include women in Latin America, native peoples, labour organizations, corporations (including original research done by One Sky), financial institutions, and nuclear developments.
Guatemala and Honduras were featured in the April issues of "One Sky Reports" ($1), while the May 1981 issue reported on Nicaraguan development and El Salvador. "Brazil: The Economic Disaster", the theme of the February 1982 issue, includes a report on Brazilian-Canadian corporate ties. An introductory booklet on the situation of Chile's native people, " Mapuche--The People of the Land", is also available from the centre ($1).

ONE SKY is a learner centre funded by the federal and provincial governments. It seeps to provide resources to support the efforts of community organizations "on the front lines" who are working on various issues. These resources usually take the form of printed materials, audio-visuals, classes, public speaking, and the use of space. ONE SKY's work has focussed on labour, women, native people, solidarity with Latin America, and agriculture. Its resources are used by schools, churches, and community organizers. Some of the resources provided are:

- One Sky Report, a monthly publication of articles and commentary focussed on a particular
theme. Recent editions have focussed on "Labour and the New Technology", "Racism and
Economic Power", "Women in the Work Force", and "Guatemala: The People United;"

- a clipping service focussing on the issues already mentioned as well as all Third World countries,
corporations and finance, uranium issues, repression and civil liberties, natural resources
and Saskatchewan development;

- a periodical library of over 100 publications, including some difficult to find in the mainstream
