Top Co-op Issues 2016

In late fall 2015, the Centre conducted a survey that canvassed Canada's co-op leaders, including CEOs and managers, board members and academics, on their views about the top issues currently facing co-operative organizations. Our forty-six key informants were remarkably consistent in identifying their most pressing concerns, which we have analysed and organized under themes that include access to capital, governance, member commitment, youth engagement, and public awareness of the co-op model.

The top three issues may surprise you!

The poster found here itemizes the top twelve themes and highlights the top three issues. Respondents had clear suggestions for action and we have included some of them here. We have also added a few quotations from respondents illustrating their concerns and suggestions for solutions.

Here is the poster in French.
