Co-op Week 2017

Co-op Week saw many celebrations in communities throughout the province. Regina had three big events on Monday, the 16th of October.

In Saskatoon, the annual Co-op Week Luncheon sponsored by the Saskatoon Co-op Network took place Wednesday, 18 October. Featured speaker was the Centre's Paul Thompson, below, who recently launched an open online governance course in collaboration with Co-operatives First. More than 300 people from around the world registered! Paul talked to us about the creation of the course, its content and structure, and the goals we're aiming for.

A special feature of the Centre's Co-op Week celebrations was the presentation here of a small collection of archival co-op week articles written by Brett Fairbairn in the 1990s in the StarPhoenix and the Saskatoon Free Press.
