We are pleased to release the 2015-2016 Co-ops in Schools annual report on the program’s inaugural year.
 
As part of our strategic plan, the BCCA is committed to articulating and evaluating all our programs to ensure that they meet our members’ needs and the needs of the co-operative economy in British Columbia. Read the Co-ops in Schools annual report, learn how we are responding to the sector’s vital interests, and then let us know how your organization will be involved too.

CO-OP CAFÉ PROMOTES PRINCIPLE 6

This grassroots initiative is a great place to ask questions, exchange information, discuss current events through a co-op lens, jam on ideas, and build the local co-op community. BCCA is pleased to support this open discussion where all are welcome. It is different every time! The next Co-op Café will be held Wednesday, February 22nd from 8-9.30 am at The Lost and Found Cafe, 33 West Hastings, Vancouver. For more information on the Co-op Café series, email Tasha Nathanson at tasha@bcca.coop.

CO-OPS IN SCHOOL PROGRAM SUMMER UPDATE

We are expanding the program into Victoria, partnering there with UVic and Mount Douglas Secondary, thanks to new funding from Federated Co-operatives Ltd. We are also bringing Langara College and Burnaby Mountain Secondary, Hugh McRoberts Secondary and North Surrey Secondary into CIS. It’s a busy time laying the groundwork to burst purposefully into the new school year.
