Cooperation Canada, in its continuous effort to cater to its members, held a two-day event tailored for its Working Groups, scheduled on November 16-17.

During this virtual conference, we aimed to create a space allowing you to…

  • meet with your Working Group if you’re part of one,
  • or pop into a WG meeting to learn more about them
  • be part of thematic brainstorms, a speed dating session, training and more!

Learning, networking and collaboration were the ultimate objectives of this event as sessions were designed for members to have ample opportunity to engage with their peers.


Why you should attend 

As a member, this is a chance for you to network with your peers, fine-tune your collaborative work and learn from other sector organizations. We also hope you’ll get to know about what Cooperation Canada can do to support and help you!


This conference was a members-only event.
