Co-operatives First

Leave a comment

Today, Federated Co-operatives Ltd. announced the creation of a new non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in rural and First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities in western Canada, using the co-operative model.

What they’d like to see: more people talking about co-ops.

We’d like to see that too! In fact, Co-operatives First benefits from the Co-operative Innovation Project: the research and data collected by the Project will be ported forward into Co-operatives First, so that its rich resources can continue to benefit the entire co-operative community.

Below are the remarks from Murray Fulton, CRS Chair in Co-operative Governance, who was project lead for CIP.

Exciting times ahead…!
