Open for Business Co-op Roundtable
On January 15, 2014, we hosted a targeted meeting facilitated by Pillar Non-profit Network to formulate recommendations to cut red tape and reduce beaurocratic barriers for co-operatives. This meeting was part of a larger initiative by the Ministry of Economic Development, Training, and Education (MEDTE) to collect input from the wider social enterprise sector - but January 15th was the only session specifically targeted to co-operatives.
We will be working with all co-op federations and associations in the province to help them solicit input from their member organizations, which can then be passed directly to On Co-op.
