The world around us has changed dramatically as a result of Covid-19. The co-operative model, especially when partnered with government, is a proven way to help people shine in times of darkness. We need this type of partnership to unleash the co-operative potential inherent in all of us. The Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation (“CWCF”) has been researching and incubating these ideas for decades, and feels called to partner with the Government of Canada to help people and communities save jobs and small businesses. Attached are both CWCF’s Proposal for Building Community Resilience, and our most recent federal pre-budget brief.
