We present a united voice for the co-op sector and represent the collective interests of our members through interactions with other co-op organizations, federal and provincial governments, and external developmental agencies.
We promote the co-op model at every opportunity, as a sustainable and community-minded approach to a better future, using our member co-ops and credit unions as the prime example of how co-operative thinking is already a major contributor to the economic and social development of our communities.
We offer educational opportunities and learning sessions not only to our members, but also to government, businesses, and the public. Topics we educate on include, but are not limited to, the benefits of being members of co-ops and credit unions and the important role they play in the community development process.
We support the growth of existing co-ops and credit unions, while aiding and guiding groups interested in pursuing the development of new co-ops.
We are proud to be part of a network of provincial co-op associations and councils across Canada that are linked through Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC), our country’s national co-operative sector association. As members of the NLFC our co-operatives and credit unions are a part of a national network that supports the growth and development of the co-operative sector across our province, our country, and the world.
