Owning the Economy - Cooperative Models and Methods
Cooperatives are a business model based on democratic sharing of resources. They are both idealistic and quite realistic, providing real-world solutions to some of our most vexing economic problems. In co-ops, power and profits remain with the people who use the business, instead of becoming concentrated in the hands of investors.

Come spend a day immersed in the inspiring world of co-ops, with a special focus on worker-ownership. Co-op developer Andrew McLeod will provide an introduction to cooperative forms, walk participants through the start-up process and help envision ways that the North Bay could benefit from cooperative solutions.

Andrew McLeod is a cooperative development consultant who holds a Masters in Management  Co-operatives and Credit Unions graduate degree from the Sobey Business School at St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He has been involved in the cooperative movement since 1992.
