Cooperatives and Mutuals Canada
Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC) is a member-driven association that supports, promotes and unites co-operative and mutual organisations. CMC strives to advance the co-operative economy by organizing co-op development, advocating with government and conducting research to improve public policy. CMC serves as a common table for co-operatives and mutuals in Canada.
Our work is never done in isolation. Our strength comes from working together through the diversity of CMC’s membership. By working together we can develop and create an association whose work and collective reflection of its membership will ultimately build a better Canada.
By furthering co-operatives and mutuals, CMC works to improve the lives of Canadians. Consider health care co-ops, Aboriginal co-ops, agricultural co-ops, funeral co-ops and co-ops in low-income communities – these and many others enable people to set up services they need, to access education, shelter, and a better standard of living.
