“Building a Co-operative Community” - CDF Banquet Dinner & Fundraiser

"Building a Co-operative Community"
CDF Banquet Dinner & Fundraiser

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 at the Courtyard by Marriott, Downtown Toronto, the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) in partnership with On Co-op, is hosting a very special evening to celebrate the awesomeness that are Ontario's co-operatives and credit unions, and to commemorate CDF's 70th and On Co-op's 15th anniversaries, and Canada's 150th birthday!

Leaders, directors, stakeholders, employees and members of co-operatives from across the province are invited to join us for the celebratory evening, which will include a three-course seated meal, fantastic live entertainment by The Dreamboats (so be sure to bring your dancing shoes and partners), a live auction, and the presentation of CCA's/CDF's 2017 Ontario Global Co-operator Award.

The evening will provide a unique networking opportunity between co-operatives and credit unions in Ontario, and close off the 2017 Provincial Co-op Conference taking place earlier in the day, while launching the 33rd annual Credit Union Directors' Forum.

Most importantly, all the proceeds raised from this event will go towards supporting CDF's efforts to alleviate poverty through international co-op and credit union development programs around the world.

REGISTER today ($115 + HST) - Seating is limited!

The Banquet Dinner & Fundraiser is open to anyone wishing to come, and you do not have to be a delegate of either conference to attend!
