Resources

Here you will find resources from Canada, and around the world, on starting, improving and running a worker co-operative. We are continually adding to and updating our collection of resources.

In addition to these resources, there are two other sites which you may want to review. One is CoopZone (www.coopZone.coop), the site of the CoopZone Developers’ Network of Canada, which contains resources on developing all types of co-operatives. The other is the site of the US Federation of Worker Co-operatives, www.usworker.coop, which includes a document library.
