Creating Connections: A Workshop on Exploring Co-operatives

This workshop is designed for community leaders interested in how the co-operative business model can be used to capture opportunities in their communities. By examining the co-operative business model from a practitioner’s perspective, and working on real-life applications, participants gain a better understanding of the process of working with groups interested in developing a co-operative. Through this workshop, participants:

  • improve their understanding of the co-op business model,
  • explore real-life case studies as a group, and
  • leave with a clear understanding of where the co-operative model works best.

February 7th from 9:00 – 11:00 at Ambrose University.

Presented in partnership with Co-operatives First and CoopZone Developers Network Cooperative.

New Project Announced

The Canadian Poverty Institute is pleased to announce the launch of a new project, the Justice Sector Coordination Research Project.

With funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario, this project will examine the justice sector service system in Alberta to identify barriers to service coordination and integration and develop recommendations for more effective service integration. 

The purpose of the project is to enhance the coordination of justice services in order to increase access to justice for vulnerable Albertans.
