“Co-operating” with our Sponsors

While we’re now all immersed in each of our new offices, one of the perks of OLIP is that we remain connected to our fellow interns and to our sponsors.

A couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of having lunch with The Co-operators, an organization that has been a strong supporter of the program. Along with Frank Bomben and Maya Milardovic from the Co-operators, we were lucky to also meet representatives of several other co-ops and co-operative organizations from across Ontario.

These organizations, including the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada, le Conseil de la Coopération de l’Ontario, and the Ontario Co-operative Association, had also come to the legislature for co-op day at Queen’s Park. Therefore, in addition to being provided a lovely meal we got to learn more about how co-operatives work, and the unique challenges they face compared to traditional corporate businesses in Ontario.

Thanks again to the Co-operators for a great lunch and their ongoing support of OLIP!
