Annual General Meeting

OCA's Annual General Meeting provides our membership with an opportunity to practice their democratic rights, have a voice, participate in learning and professional development opportunities and network with other co-operative organizations within our membership.

Our next AGM will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 10am EST.


Board Chair, Jordan Moat takes a moment to thank Executive Director Erin Morgan at the September 21, 2022 AGM, who announced her resignation in early September.


Close to 40 delegates joined OCA for its Virtual AGM on September 21, 2022. Board Chair Jordan Moat (Libro Credit Union) opened the meeting by welcoming the membership and introducing the Board and staff. Erin Morgan then presented the Executive Director's Report, which was followed by Jordan's Board Report - both of which highlighted the past year's accomplishments and some of the future initiatives for OCA. Jordan also recognized and thanked Erin for her leadership and service as ED of OCA for the past six years. For a more comprehensive overview of the past year, check out our 2021-2022 Annual Report

Following the Treasurer and Auditor's Reports, an election to the OCA Board took place. As there were no nominations from the floor, Chris Canners representing SolarShare and Jordan Moat representing Libro Credit Union, were acclaimed as the two Directors-at-Large each for a three-year term. Two new directors joined the board, Reba Plummer representing the Canadian Worker Co-op Federation and Kelli Phillips representing Hay Communications Co-op, were each acclaimed for a one-year term. As no nominations were received for the Youth Director position, this seat remains open.

Jordan then thanked our retiring Directors for their contribution and service to the organization: Hugh Nelson (Y's Owl Maclure Co-operative Centre), Shylah Wolfe (Local Food and Farm Co-operative) and Maya Linsley (Youth Director).  

Immediately after the business meeting, Michael Ras of Counsel Public Affairs did a thirty- minute presentation on Co-op Advocacy, in preparation for the upcoming Co-operative Queen’s Park Reception and Lobby Day, taking place on October 26, 2022.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the delegates that attended the AGM this year!
