OCA supports co-operative education with three target audiences in mind: those leading co-operatives or are employed in the co-operative sector, the general public and youth. Learn more about why this is so important. 

Our own educational and training programs provide a variety of learning and professional development opportunities for both existing co-operators, as well as a new generation of co-operative leaders, and can take various forms including: summer programs for youth (Co-operative Young Leaders), facilitation training and opportunities for adults (Co-operative Young Leaders), co-operative learning in the classroom for youth (All 4 Each), co-operative training and workshops for both new and existing co-operatives (through webinars, educational sessions, conferences and events, as well as specialized training sessions designed to meet the needs of our members), and other educational opportunities for co-operatives offered outside of OCA, both provincially and nationally. Learn more about our educational programs and other co-operative learning opportunities available!
