The first goal of the research reported is to estimate the roles and significance of home-based businesses (HBBs) in a set of Canadian cities (Vancouver, Regina, Prince Albert, Edmonton, and Yellowknife). An analysis of HBBs is used as a case study to explore the transformation of local government from an institution attempting to manage conflicts to an entity designed to promote economic growth through a form of urban entrepreneurialism. It focuses specifically on the conflicts and complementarities that exist between various community groups, most importantly on three sets of linkages: those between commercial business owners and home based entrepreneurs, those between HBB owners and their residential neighbours, and the relationships between both of these business groups and their local governments. Another goal of the research is to systematically examine the importance of place in influencing both the nature of HBB activity and the relationships between the various groups within the communities. Data for the study come from semi-structured personal interviews with community representatives and questionnaire surveys of HBBs and commercial businesses
