Abstract:  The HANDBOOK OF THE CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL NETWORK presents an organizational model which may interest other networks and non-profit organizations. The first two sections give a description and a brief overview of the historical development and focus of the Canadian Envionmental Network.

Subsequent sections outline the type of national structure which this network has adopted for itself, coveing such tipics as the functioning of nataional steering committee, role and responsibilities of participating groups and the role of members.

A section on environmental networking looks at the role of networks, how membership in networks is defined and extended, how decisions are made, when it is appropriate to operate as a network and how to run effective meetings.
