Join the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives - Manitoba Office and the Manitoba Research Alliance on October 15th to hear about Indigenizing the Co-operative Model as part of Canada’s Co-op Week. The event will be hosted on Zoom and broadcast live on Facebook.
The panel discussion will help launch recent research by Jim Thunder and Mark Intertas that delves into the history of Indigenous governance in Canada, the significant overlap in values and principles between Indigenous forms of governance and co-operatives, and studies the differences in success of Indigenous co-operatives in urban and rural communities. This research was funded by the Manitoba Research Alliance and is published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. The authors will be joined by Kathy Mallett and Mary Nirlungayuk, and moderated by Crystal Laborero, project lead for Ka Ni Kanichihk’s report Building Aboriginal Cooperative Capacity (2017).
