TSSEC is a cooperative association, established in 2011. Its mandate is to facilitate eligible businesses and projects on Salt Spring Island that reduce the community's dependence on fossil fuels and/or increase local resilience to the effects of climate change.
Our vision for Salt Spring is a vibrant, resilient Transition Community, less dependent on imported energy sources, with a strong local economy and healthy ecosystems. We are contributing to this vision by connecting members with local projects that lower our carbon footprint, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and provide other environmental and social benefits.
Activities to date include loans for the Booth Canal pathway, the Salt Spring Island Abattoir, and the Electric Vehicle Charging Station at ArtSpring.
TSSEC operates under the Cooperative Associations Act of BC. As a cooperative, TSSEC is owned by its members who elect the volunteer Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting and provide guidance to the Board.
Elizabeth White, president
Donald McLennan, treasurer
