Co-operatives in Our Midst

Canadian Charity Law      17 Aug 2023      Online event      Partner/affiliate event

9 – 10 a.m. PDT

This webinar provides a brief overview of the sector and an opportunity learn about the more than 7,000 co-operatives that are found across Canada.


A co-operative is an organization owned by its members that share similar economic, cultural and/or social needs. The co-op business model is proven, albeit lesser-known, and it promotes democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. As such, co-operatives are uniquely suited to meet the needs of individuals and communities, from housing and childcare to renewable energy and retail.

This webinar will be presented by Daniel Brunette currently Director of Strategic Alliances and Initiatives at Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada. He has more than 20 years of philanthropic management and stakeholder relations experience with non-profit organizations, as both an employee and volunteer.

Daniel has, and continues to serve, on numerous charitable and non-profit boards and committees, including being the current Chair of Outaouais Philanthropy, and as a member of the board of the Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Reporting for Co-operatives (CEARC) and the CoopZone Developers’ Network Co-operative. Daniel was awarded a United Way Ottawa Community Builder Award in 2015.
