In partnership with the Conseil de la coopération de l'Ontario (CCO), OCA will be hosting an evening reception on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 from 5 - 7pm in the Committee Rooms #228 & 230 of the Main Legislative Building, Queen's Park. Click for directions.
This year's event will commemorate accomplishing our goal of getting the Government to commit to reviewing and modernizing the Co-operative Corporations Act, and moving the incorporation of co-operatives to the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services. We want to celebrate the hard work of all the Government and co-operative sector leaders who helped make this possible.
As a riding representative, you will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with Ministers, MPPs and government staffers, and tell them 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 - as outlined in our 2019 pre-budget submission.
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 us at 4:30pm in the Basement Cafeteria of the Main Legislative Building for this session. Separate registration for this is not required.
We will be sharing the following speaking points with our registered delegates to get everyone on the same page with our asks.
THIS EVENT IS FREE TO ATTEND BUT YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER BY 4pm, THURSDAY, APRIL 25th TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE LEGISLATIVE BUILDINGS. A light offering of food and beverage will be provided.
