About Al
At various stages of my life I've been a community organizer, social entrepreneur and author, most of it with families of people with disabilities. I write a regular blog and my new book on social innovation and impact should be out soon. Lately I've been active in the Canadian collaboration, Social Innovation Generation (SIG) and BC Partners for Social Impact.

Currently I am interested in understanding more about the social innovation 'terroir' of Canada and what can be done to support our capacity for natural care and belonging. Mostly I delight in the pursuits of my adult children and perfecting my badminton game with my wife Vickie Cammack.
