The Canadian Council on Social Development is promoting SocioNet Interaction, "Canada's on-Line Social Development Network and Database". SocioNet Interaction offers on-line databases (or reference files), directs users to off-line databases and provides a forum for conferences on social issues such as employment, social services, income security, education, health, housing, justice, and citizenship. SocioNet Interaction is sponsored and facilitated by the Canadian Council on Social Development (CCSD), with the NIRV Centre, a Toronto-based non-profit organization that also provides Web, a national network for social change activists involved in environmental, peace and social justice issues, acting as host and distributor.
SocioNet Interaction emphasizes new social policies, legislation, programs or projects, bibliographies, social statistics and current issues. It does not provide a comprehensive inventory of any of these listings, but conveys information that is as up-to-date as the electronic medium will allow. SI is linked to other networks, including the Employability Resources Network, the Social Services Information Exchange, the Community Health Network, the Social Planning Network, the Social Work Network, and the Associations Network.
Each conference provides directories, bibliographies, statistics, trends and debates. Users can start their own topic or respond to someone else's.
Membership (account setup and manuals) is free if you join before January 1, 1992, after which a one-time charge will apply. Subscriptions may be paid at 6- or 12-month intervals at the rate of $70 for 6 months; $120 for 12 months.
