CWCF’s Lobby History and Priorities 1991 – 2019

Federal lobbying in support of worker co-op development and expansion has been an extremely important part of the work of the CWCF, and similarly the making of applications to federal programs.  The first document provides a history from 1991 to mid-2019 of the CWCF’s lobbying activities, and provides its current priorities. The second explains what CWCF’s 2019 priority asks/ offers are to the federal Government in the context of the climate change crisis, per the pre-Budget submission guidelines.  This was submitted to Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada in summer 2019 requesting that it be part of the co-operative sector asks.
