Since 1958, the Co-op Week has been celebrated from coast to coast in order to invite Canadians to become more interested in the co-operative movement and to become aware of the importance of co-operatives in the daily lives of one billion citizens around the world.
The Co-op Week 2017 will be held this year under the theme: "Co-operatives Build a Better World". The theme is inspired by the current enthusiasm for cooperative values, especially in millennials. Many of them are looking for companies that embody values of solidarity, honesty, equity, and social responsibility, but few of them know that these are precisely the universal values that drive cooperative enterprises.
Most certainly, in its own way, La Coop fédérée contributes to building a better world.
Happy Co-op Week to everyone!
