Thanks for your time and talent

2014 has been a big year for the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA). A year of progress, learning and change.
One of the biggest changes of course being our focus becoming solely on international development, a change we have embraced and we continue to thrive and grow in our efforts to use the co-operative model to alleviate poverty around the world.

Just a few of the many highlights from CCA this year include:  

In 2015 we look forward to more new activities and also to continue to support and be supported by our valuable partners around the world.

All of the projects and achievements mentioned in this issue of Dispatch plus all the other work we do relies on our many wonderful volunteers.  So click on the link below to see profiles of some of the people who are living the
co-operative values and sharing their time and talents overseas for CCA.

Thank you to everyone who has supported CCA and CDF this past year and we wish everyone a very happy holiday season and New Year.
CCA is a not-for-profit co-operative with a mission to establish and grow co-operatives internationally that build a better world.


To achieve this mission, CCA works closely with Canadian co-operatives and credit unions to channel their knowledge and experience to partner organizations and co-operatives in Africa, Asia, the Americas, Eastern Europe and Caribbean.
