Laurie Mook is director of the Social Economy Centre of the University of Toronto. She has degrees in accounting, international development, and education. She was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada doctoral fellow at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. As part of her research, Mook has taken the lead in designing accounting statements that are appropriate for organizations with a social mission. One such adaptation is the Expanded Value Added Statement (EVAS), a statement that illustrates the impact of the organization upon the surrounding community and the effects of the organization on an array of stakeholders. In her Ph.D. thesis, Mook has applied this framework to environmental accounting. Jack Quarter is a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto, specializing in the study of nonprofits, cooperatives, and the social economy. He is one of the first researchers in English Canada to undertake a comprehensive study of the social economy, published in his 1992 book, Canada's Social Economy. Quarter is the author of 12 books and over 100 journal papers and book chapters addressing a broad range of social issues. He is the principal investigator for large number of research projects funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), including the research currently being undertaken through the Social Economy Centre, but his more recent work has, together with Mook and Richmond, focused upon social accounting and its application to nonprofits and cooperatives. Betty Jane Richmond (B.J.) is a professor in the Faculty of Education, York University, specializing in inclusive education, adult and community education. Richmond has extensive experience in the nonprofit sector including work with a large Ontario-wide funder of nonprofits. For her doctoral thesis (under the supervision of Jack Quarter) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto, Richmond developed the Community Social Return on Investment model and applied it to a community-based training agency for people on social assistance because of various forms of disability. Richmond won the outstanding dissertation award for 1999 from ARNOVA (Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Associations), the leading learned society in this field.
