Training & Workshops

There are a number of ways that OCA can provide you and your co-operative with training and resources to help develop, strengthen and grow your business!


We are in the process of developing a series of free, easy to read and interactive Guided Learning presentations to assist co-operatives with various aspects of their business. There are three resources currently available. Simply click on the image to load the presentation.

  • Co-ops 101 and Co-ops 201 for your board, staff or members
  • Co-operative business development
  • Co-operative business succession
  • Co-op advocacy and legislation in Ontario
  • Member engagement
  • Holding effective meetings 
  • Event and conference planning (including AGMs and Queen's Park Receptions)
  • Youth engagement strategies
  • Governance training for Board or Board-liaison/staff members
  • Strategic and/or operation planning

Simply reach out to us to discuss your needs, and the best way we can help, be it via a webinar or an in-person presentation for your staff, board, or members.

You can also access our network of Co-op Service Providers and other individuals with special expertise in co-operatives to assist you with your needs.
