"We're the Boss!" is an inspiring film about a community that made the connection between culture and economic development. It is a look at the Evangeline region, a predominantly Acadian area in western Prince Edward Island where local initiative, several co-operatives and a credit union have transformed the economy and thereby strengthened Acadian culture. Some of the community-based enterprises shown are a potato chip factory, a fish-processing plant, a wood-chip operation, a funeral home, a cable TV station. Looking both to the past and to the future, the film includes interviews with pioneers of about the role of co-ops in their community.
