This webinar explores the goals, activities and impacts the Canadian co-operative movement has had on communities across the globe. Développement international Desjardins, SOCODEVI and the International Development Department of the Canadian Co-operative Association have been active in supporting community-focused development through supporting co-op growth and development. The three organizations have recently published a report entitled “Creating Wealth, Reducing Poverty and Building a Better World: Canadian Co-operatives in International Development” (http://www.did.qc.ca/media/documents/en/cooperatives-canadiennes/DID-SOCO-ACC-Broch_ang.pdf).
