Inspiring your community.
Western Canada is ready for innovative co-operative business solutions unique to the changing needs of rural and Indigenous communities.
The creation of a new co-operative business requires business capacity, social/market capacity, a well-defined need not being met and awareness of the co-operative business model.
Our Inspire events are designed to drive an awareness of the versatility of the co-operative business model and an understanding of the many benefits this business model offers member-owners and the community the business operates within.
What we offer:
• Facilitated event
• Support for logistics
• Mediation of differing opinions
• Pathfinding between ideas and communities
• Inspiration and innovation for community-led ideas and solutions
• A deep knowledge of business, community and economic development
• An even deeper knowledge of the co-operative business model
