CESO in 1991-92

In December of 1991, the fall of the Soviet Union leaves the formerly occupied states in Eastern Europe scrambling to develop market economies. CESO responds by developing a cooperative program with the Canadian Bankers’ Association in Lithuania and the newly formed Czech Republic, and assignments in Estonia and Poland.

At home, CESO’s Aboriginal program refocuses many initiatives to support Indigenous communities’ aspirations towards self-governance.  




In 1991, CESO’s annual reports began to feature an approximate valuation of services performed by volunteers over the year.

Gwen La Freniere became the first Indigenous woman to be appointed as a CESO regional manager, overseeing projects with native groups in Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.

In July, 1992, CESO celebrated its 25th anniversary marking the occasion by expanding services into Russia and Kazakhstan.
