Co-operatives are a different kind of business model that are driven by people, planet and profit. The Ontario Co-operative Association (OCA) is the provincial trade association for Ontario’s 1,100+ English-speaking co-operatives. Our job is to ensure that people across the province understand the benefits and versatility of the co-operative business model, and to promote our member-owned co-operative businesses that contribute $6 billion to the Ontario economy.

OCA wants communities across Ontario to grow and thrive, and we believe that the co-operative model has a significant role to play in capturing opportunities for new business, creating stronger and more vibrant local economies, increasing community engagement and building a more sustainable social economy overall.
