Canada's Co-ops, CUs Meeting This Week
EDMONTON, Canada (6/27/13)--More than 250 leaders of cooperatives and credit unions from across Canada are gathered to share their success stories and talk about where the cooperative movement is heading in the future in Edmonton. The meeting ends Friday.

"Sharing our successes; building the future" is the theme of the Congress organized by Canada's two national co-operative associations, the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) and the Conseil canadien de la cooperation et de la mutualite (CCCM).

Congress participants will look back on the successes of the 2012 United Nations International Year of Cooperatives, a global celebration of the contribution cooperatives make to the social and economic development of communities worldwide.

Another focus will be the Blueprint for a Cooperative Decade, an action plan produced by the International Cooperative Alliance aimed at making cooperatives the world's fastest growing business model by the year 2020. Participants will explore the themes of the blueprint and their implications for cooperatives in Canada.

Canada's 9,000 cooperatives have more than 18 million members and 150,000 employees. They generate annual revenues of more than $50 billion and have assets of more than $370 billion.
