Interested in connecting more regularly with fellow co-operators? Join us for Co-op Cafe, a casual monthly gathering on the last Wednesday of every month!

Co-op Cafe is your chance to get to know the co-op community, workshop problems and ideas, discuss current events through the co-op lens, and jam on ideas for how we can nurture co-op culture in Metro Vancouver and beyond.

Everyone is welcome! In particular, we invite anyone exploring a new business venture and interested in learning more about the co-operative model.

RSVP (not required, but helpful) to Katherine Levett (katherine@bcca.coop) and please indicate your co-op affiliations and/or aspirations.

We hope to see you there!

Co-operate Now: The co-op business bootcamp

Co-operate Now: The co-op business bootcamp

Nov 16, 12:00pm - Nov 19, 6:00pm

Co-operate Now is a four-day intensive co-operative business education program. Co-operate Now provides information on what makes the co-operative model a unique and powerful form of social enterprise, and how to build a competitive and socially impactful local business.

Through Co-operate Now’s interactive workshops, students connect with leaders from the vibrant co-operative sector in BC, including the BC Co-op Association, Vancity Credit Union, Mountain Equipment Co-op, the Co-operators Insurance Agencies, CCEC Credit Union, the BC Libraries Co-op, Modo, and many others. These leaders take students through the micro and macro levels of building a co-operative enterprise, and provide the information needed to consider co-operation as a business strategy. Students also build valuable connections to BC co-ops to support their own start-up co-op.

Interested?
Applications are now open and will be accepted until the class is full. Class size is limited to ensure an environment of engagement and dialogue.
