Building Resilient Communities: CWCF-CoopZone Conference 2019

By Kenzie Love and Hazel Corcoran
CWCF concluded a successful conference in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, which offered both valuable new insights in forums and workshops and the familiar social and networking opportunities participants have come to expect. In this article, complete with links to presentations and videos, we seek to share some of the learnings.

Perspective from the Board Chair of The Co-operators

By John Harvie
On October 25th and 26th, I had the opportunity to attend the CWCF annual conference and AGM. We were recognized as regular partners in many areas and as sponsors of this conference. The Co-operators got plenty of notice and appreciation.

Save the Date: Atlantic Caucus Meeting December 4th, 2019
One key follow-up to the Conference in the Atlantic region is that the Atlantic caucus decided it would hold an all-day meeting on December 4th, in Wentworth, Nova Scotia. There was a strong commitment from worker co-operatives, Saint Mary’s University, and CDR – Acadie to increase the promotion of worker co-operatives and their collaboration with co-operatives to help build resilient communities within a solidarity economy. If you are in the Atlantic region and wish to participate, please contact: Eric Tusz-King (erictuszking@gmail.com or 506-536-7215).
