Shared Ownership Workshop 2

110316_shared

Co-operatives are a distinctive and highly successful form of social enterprise.

One or more stakeholder groups (consumers, employees, entrepreneurs, and/or other organizations) jointly own and democratically direct the enterprise to meet their objectives. In Ontario alone, we have more than 1,200 co-operative enterprises and organizations in 400 communities with 15,000 employees.

In this series of three workshops, participants will learn about the distinctive features and values of co-operative enterprises; how these enterprises are structured and incorporated, with a focus on employee-owned co-operatives (worker co-ops); and how succession planning can be used to transform an existing business into a co-operative enterprise. Participants will also have opportunity to engage with co-op practitioners and entrepreneurs from across Southern Ontario.
