Canada celebrates its 150th Anniversary this year, and holding the Co-operative Congress in Ottawa is an opportunity for our members to enjoy the atmosphere of celebration. With the National Capital Region hosting a year-long celebration marking our confederation, it is an extraordinary time to visit.

Congress takes place June 20 – 22 at the Delta Hotel and early bird registration begins on April 3.

This year’s welcome reception, the evening of June 20th, will be an outdoor block party on one of Canada’s most famous pedestrian spaces, the Sparks Street mall. The event will have street food and entertainment within steps of the Parliament.  

A key session during this year’s Congress will be focusing on how the co‑operative model can deliver economic growth by solving challenges together with the Federal Government. This discussion will contribute to a national strategy on co-operative development that identifies emerging opportunities and ways of accelerating their impact socially and economically.  

The Congress Awards Ceremony will celebrate Canada’s brightest Emerging Co‑operator, the Co-operative of the Year, and the Co-operative Achievement Award recognizing exceptional careers in the sector.

Organized tours of the Ottawa region’s many co‑operatives will inspire you, the CMC AGM will vote on our 2017-2020 strategic plan, and a Gala evening, including live entertainment, will bring us together for an elegant evening and late night party.
