Join other co-operators in building community among South Island Co-ops, let’s support one another!


Southern Vancouver Island is home to myriad cooperatives, all doing amazing work in their respective communities. However, far too seldom is there space for the cooperative sector to convene themselves. In response to this gap, theDock and BCCA welcome local cooperators to the inaugural monthly co-op café!

Everyone in attendance help will create space and opportunity to foster a stronger and more vibrant community among South Island Cooperatives. At this event, local cooperators will get to meet one another over food and drink, some simple exercises, and casual conversation. Furthermore, the group will collaboratively decide what they’d like to get out of a monthly convening of South Island Cooperatives – how cooperatives can mutually support one another.
