About Us

Since 1947, the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) has raised funds and rallied volunteers to bring time-tested co-operative principles to developing countries. Working with the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) and other partners, we support vocational training and co-operative savings and loans that let marginalized people work, own, save and build the foundation for a secure life.

Our Mission

To raise funds in support of co-operative and credit union development programming to reduce global poverty.

Our Vision

To raise funds annually in support of co-operative development, primarily in the developing world, while maintaining supplemental funding for domestic co-operative poverty reduction programs.
