CO‐OPERATIVES IN CANADA (flyer)
The changing pattern of non-financial co-operatives in Canada, 1955 to 2005
Jennifer Hann & Jack Quarter
Social Economy Centre, OISE, University of Toronto
A seminar sponsored by the Cities Centre’s Community Development Collaborative Program & the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work’s Chow Yei Ching Chair in Housing
This presentation analyzes the changing pattern of non-financial co-operatives in Canada using as data sources the annual summaries of the federal government agency, the Co-operatives Secretariat.
The presentation looks at changes by types of co-operatives using as criteria for each type: number of co-operatives, memberships, revenues, and assets. The presentation will attempt to explain the rural bias in Canada’s co-operatives. The presentation is based upon a forthcoming book chapter, “Non-financial Co-operatives in Canada: 1955 to 2005,” by Jack Quarter, Laurie Mook, and Jennifer Hann.
Jack Quarter is a professor and codirector of the Social Economy Centre at OISE, University of Toronto, and Jennifer Hann is an MA student and SSHRC fellowship holder at OISE, University of Toronto.
