Renewable Energy Co-operatives

Canada has a small but growing renewable energy co-operatives (RECs) sector. To better understand the role it currently plays and could play in Canada’s energy transition, the Canadian Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, with the support of the Co-operators, conducted a census and published a report on the sector.  

Big Data Revolution in the Canadian Agricultural Sector

The Big Ag Data convened 80 producers, researchers, technologists, and co-operators on March 25, 2022 to share and mobilize information about who owns and benefits from agricultural data and how it is being collected, shared, and protected from a privacy perspective.
