Indigenizing the Cooperative Model
This webinar explores how Indigenous cultures and the co-operative can be molded together to create a model that is reflective of the values, principles, and aspirations of Indigenous peoples. The information in this webinar is based on a research project published by the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives that aims at encouraging urban Indigenous communities to consider the co-operative model as a Community Economic Development tool that may create opportunities for income generation while maintaining independence through self-determination.
