We’re the voice of BC’s co-op sector
The BC Co-op Association (BCCA) is the knowledge and resource centre for co-ops in BC, where co-ops and credit unions come together to collaborate, network, get support, learn, and contribute knowledge to shape BC’s co-op movement.
We are Conveners
We provide a collective platform for our members to participate in customized programs and services, receive the latest sector information, connect and share ideas, and benefit from our ongoing advocacy and lobbying efforts.
We are Market Builders
We work to increase interest in, and demand for, the goods and services produced by co-ops and credit unions across BC, and to raise the co-op sector’s visibility and community impact.
We are Collaborators
We work alongside the Upper Columbia Co-op Council, which was formed in partnership with the BCCA to strengthen and raise awareness of the vibrant co-op sector in the Kootenay and Boundary regions of Southeastern BC.
The BCCA is part of a global co-op movement led by the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA). Through this alliance, we gain support to accelerate and strengthen our local co-op movement, build partnerships with other social impact organizations, and contribute to the transition to a social economy in BC.
