Jennifer Ross

Executive Director

Jennifer is a strong supporter of co-operatives and what they can do for our communities. She is an advocate for, a promoter of, and connector within the co-operative movement.

She began her co-operative career with OCA in 2009 as the Office Co-ordinator, where she supported the core administrative and financial functions of the organization. From 2016 to 2022, she held the role of Member Relations Manager, building strong relationships with members and other key stakeholders while also supporting the organization with co-operative development, governance, legislation and advocacy work.

Jennifer is a graduate of the Fundamentals of Co-operative Organizations Program from the Schulich School of Business pursued a post-secondary education in the non-profit sector and graduated from the Non-Profit Management Program at Sheridan College. She has worked in administrative roles for a number of different non-profits both locally and internationally, and feels fortunate that her career has led her to the co-operative sector. 

While traveling and working abroad, Jennifer gained a variety of work and life experiences (and a husband) along the way. She is also a proud mother of two boys.
