On Co-op (the Ontario Co-operative Association), in partnership with le Conseil de la coopération de l'Ontario (CCO), will be hosting a strategic Lobby Day, followed by an evening reception at Queen’s Park, on Wednesday, May 10, 2017.
As a riding representative, you will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with Ministers, MPPs, government staffers and fellow co-operators! A light offering of food and beverage will be provided.
For those who would like to participate and are not as familiar with the co-op advocacy process, we will be hosting a short “Co-ops Advocacy 101” session immediately prior to the Reception for all our attendees. Please come early and join them at 4:30pm in the Basement Cafeteria of the Main Legislative Building for this session! Separate registration for this is not required.
Objective: To provide the co-operative sector with the opportunity to inform Ministers and MPPs about the social and economic benefits that co-operatives bring to our communities and the province, as well as the legislative barriers which prevent co-operatives from thriving. On Co-op has outlined the three key co-op sector recommendations, which are available on their website.
IMPORTANT: THIS EVENT IS BY INVITE ONLY AND YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE LEGISLATIVE BUILDINGS.
