We worked together in plenaries and tours at our recent 8th Assembly. On Day 1, The co-ops also gathered for the first time to talk about what they had accomplished in the past year, and what was to come. The Working Together session also developed the new mission statement to go with our new incorporated status.
We asked: how can we work together to strengthen individual co-ops and the sector? How do we collaborate now and in the future? Over 60% of
members report that they are expanding or starting a new co-op. Over 70% are working on sector development. The energy was high in the room as well as during the wonderful tour of Muskoka North Good Food Co-op nearby (see photo). The session gave the coordinators lots of ideas for the year to come.
