ACU’s Sustainable Community Grant Program has cooperative development as one of it’s three targeted purposes. A starting or established cooperative enterprise may be eligible for one of our grants to support the development of their coop. Attached is a very brief announcement regarding the program – which includes a link to a more detailed description. These grants are targeted for Manitoba, and specifically Winnipeg, Thompson and Gillam.
Did you know that there is another Coop Zone? Coop Zone (or the "Zone Coop") is a consumer cooperative in Quebec City, which offers the university community -- and the academic world -- a range of products and high quality services tailored to the needs of its members throughout their educational and professional path; hardware and technical services, books and stationery, e-books, art supplies, clothing and promotional items.
