Co-operative Management Conference

June 14-16
Shaw Centre
Ottawa, Ontario


This premier professional development opportunity brings together managers, coordinators and staff of housing co-operatives across Canada. Through engaging plenaries, networking and cutting-edge training, co-op managers will gain and share key insights, knowledge and skills to successfully manage co-ops and build the co-op vision of Co-op Housing for All.

Please note: The Co-operative Management Conference (CMC) is open only to staff and managers of housing co-ops. Members of housing co-ops are not able to participate in the CMC events or workshops. They participate in the Member Education Forum (MEF).

To meet all your professional management needs, the CMC workshop program offers four dynamic learning streams:

  • Professional development
