At the vanguard of Canadian innovation : À l'avant-garde de l'innovation canadienne : compilation d'études de cas sur les coopératives




Building on past work around innovation, Canada's Public Policy Forum recently organized a cross-country discussion series to explore the role of co-operatives in Canada. Throughout the series, Innovation through Cooperation, we heard about the impact of co-ops, but limited public awareness continues to undermine the potential for further growth. As a follow-up to the series, the Forum conducted research on co-op innovations to help increase understanding of the model and provide lessons in building innovative organizations within and outside the co-op community.
