Co-op conference coming to Ottawa

Next week Ottawa will host a conference for members of co-operative businesses and for people wanting to start one or learn more about what a co-op is.

Ottawa Co-op Network member Celine Carriere explains they're democratically owned businesses incorporated by members working toward a common purpose.

"Whether it's dairy farmers coming together to market their milk together to get a better price or members who need affordable housing coming together to build a housing co-op and live in affordable housing together, it's designed to serve that membership in whatever way those members need it," said Carriere.

She said the 2014 Co-op Connections Eastern Ontario Regional Conference is a great opportunity to discuss common challenges and opportunities for current co-op members.
