Guide to the Co-op Act

Ontario’s Co-operative Corporations Act defines what a co-operative is and dictates how they must operate. As the Act is legislation written by parliamentarians and lawyers, it uses specialized terms that can be confusing to people outside the legal profession. In response, OCA has developed a "Guide to the Act" to present its requirements in plain, accessible language.

OCA also has a number of additional FactSheets pertaining to the Act for your reference, which you can access in the Tools & Resources section.
