Strathcona Presents: Co-op Congress

Have you noticed the emerging role that co-ops are playing in our community?  Sure, you might shop at MEC or do your banking at First Ontario, but do you know the difference between a worker co-op and a consumer co-op?  And what motivates people to start a co-op instead of just a private enterprise when they want to start a business?  Think you might want to do the same?
You are cordially invited by the Strathcona Community Council to our Co-op Congress on Thursday, March 20th, 7 pm at Erskine Presbyterian Church (19 Pearl Street North).  Come out and listen to the inspirational stories behind three exciting businesses making a difference right here in Strathcona.   Guest speakers include Graham Cubitt, President and Co-founder of The Mustard Seed Co-op, Abram Bergen, President and Founder of THAAT, and Jason Hammond, President of Community CarShare.
Come shake off the winter doldrums (it’s the first day of spring after all!) and reconnect with friends and neighbours.  Fairtrade coffee and sweet local treats will be available.  What more could you possibly want?!  See you there!
