CMC development activities and networks assist co-operatives of all kinds to get established and to keep thriving. CMC offers a range of advice, information and tools to support co-op development in Canada.
A solid knowledge base is crucial to successful, sustained growth in the co-operative sector. CMC is committed to ensuring accurate and comprehensive data is available. We are engaged in collaborative, leading edge research.
CMC also offers a range of education programs, seminars and webinars to help co-operative and mutual participants flourish along with their growing enterprises.
To advocate for government policies, legislation, and regulations that are favourable, co-operatives must have a national, knowledgeable voice in Ottawa. CMC is that voice, influencing the federal government and keeping CMC members actively involved in policy discussions. Learn more about CMC’s government relations.
CMC is a forum for Canadian co-operatives and mutuals, the place where knowledge and ideas are shared and debates on crucial issues are conducted. When our members engage, a common vision and alignment of purpose directs our way forward.
CMC collects and disseminates sector news through a news service. We respond to media inquires and issue news releases so that when the media needs someone to comment on an issue related to co-ops and mutuals, CMC will be front of mind. CMC’s job is to communicate on behalf of co-operatives and mutuals in Canada, regardless of language or geographic location.
