Co-op Week 2013: A Better Way

You are here

13 October, 2013 to 19 October, 2013
In these times of economic uncertainty, many Canadians are looking for alternatives to traditional business models.  They want to see businesses that are sustainable, democratic, socially-conscious and rooted in their communities.  They want businesses that put people first and are guided by values and principles, not just profits.  And they want businesses that contribute to creating better communities, a better Canada and a better world.  In short, they want a better way to do business.

That’s why the theme of Co-op Week 2013 is A Better Way.  From October 13-19, co-operators across the country will be highlighting the many ways in which co-operatives make things better, both here in Canada and around the world.  In French, the theme will be Coopérer pour un monde meilleur (Co-operating for a better world).

The theme was chosen by a national committee of co-operative communicators from across Canada, chaired by CCA and the Conseil canadien de la coopération et de la mutualité (CCCM).
