Co-ops in Schools: 2015-16 Annual Report

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.



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 Read more...
