Follow our journey

Co-ops have a long-standing history of coming together to strengthen communities, acting on our shared values and principles. Reflecting on the impact CDF Canada has had over the past 75 years is synonymous with acknowledging the dedication, passion, and generosity of our staff, volunteers, partners, board members, and donors, many of whom we will profile in stories throughout the remainder of the year.

Our celebration starts now and will unfold as a reminder of the year as we share Impact stories from programs, profile some of our partners, and hear the story of change from the people i.e. staff, donors, and volunteers. We hope you will enjoy the journey and share some of the highlights with your networks.

Wondering how it all started?

From creating markets in Canada’s north to channeling knowledge to help communities establish credit unions and co-operatives, CDF Canada has been at the forefront to build resilient, self-reliant co-operative communities since 1947. With the support of our many partners, donors, staff, and board, we’ve been able to develop and grow small businesses, create jobs, mobilize savings, and educate and train, men, women, and children to foster a better future, together.
