in the Curriculum
We recognize that although the co-operative business model is one of the four recognized business types in Canada and is reflected in the current Ontario curriculum, most teachers never learned about
co-operative businesses and therefore do not have the tools to pass on that learning to their students.
Our job is to make it easy for educators to teach
co-operative content in the classroom.
Co-operative Minds was developed by the Ontario Co-operative Association, a non-profit co-operative, with the support of Co-operators, one of Canada's largest co-operative insurance providers.
