Robust Co-op Development Environment

Leave a comment

One of the most interesting activities of CIP was to visualize what is co-operative development, and see how the people, groups, and activities required to build co-ops fit into a robust co-operative development environment.

Using ideas from the Plunkett Foundation of the UK, combined with our on-the-ground research with western Canada’s active co-op developers, we present the following model as a way to think about, measure, and support co-operative growth in western Canada.

See our chapter on Co-operative Development Environment in our final report for a richer explanation of how we built this model.
