In order to accomplish our mission to develop, support, educate and advocate for co-operatives in Ontario, OCA has six key areas of programming and service which we provide for our membership, and to the Ontario co-operative sector at large, including: 

  1. Co-operative Development
  2. Co-operative Education 
  3. Government Relations 
  4. Member Relations
  5. Communications
  6. Co-operative Research

It is through our work in these areas that we can achieve our mandate to be the VOICE of Ontario co-operatives, the PROMOTER of the co-operative principles, and the FACILITATOR of co-operative solutions. It is also through these areas that we work to strengthen our member co-operatives and the Ontario movement as a whole.
