Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada

Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC) allows our members to speak with a single voice. CMC is a national, bilingual association that represents more than 18 million co-operative members from 9,000 co-operatives.

CMC activities are targeted at helping co-operatives form, develop and thrive. Through advocacy with the federal government, CMC provides a knowledgeable voice to encourage national policies that strengthen the co-operative economy. CMC also supports wide-ranging research in partnership with leading research institutions and government to inform policy.
