Past Initiatives

On Co-op’s past Government Relations projects have improved the co-operative sector’s reputation with the public and advocated for stronger partnership with the provincial government. These initiatives have been diverse—some innovative, some traditional—and have had varying levels of success.

Specific documents mentioned therein can be found under "downloads" at the top right of this page. Information on our current and upcoming initiatives can be found on "Our Objectives" page.
