Co-op Centre gets support

The U of S announced Oct. 18 that major provincial and national co-operatives, as well as Saskatchewan Industry and Resources, have renewed their funding commitments to the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives.

The Centre’s Acting Director, Lou Hammond Ketilson, said, “The successful renewal of the contract with our sponsors gives us the stability to pursue current projects and plan well into the future.”

Contract partners in the co-op sector – Credit Union Central of Saskatchewan, Federated Co-operatives Ltd., Co-operative Trust, and The Co-operators – provide the Centre with $1.1 million over five years, which the University matches with in-kind and monetary support. The government supplies an additional $375,000, with other contributions coming from Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and The CUMIS Group.

The Centre is an well-respected interdisciplinary teaching and research institution on the U of S campus. It recently received a major award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council for a major study on co-operative membership and social cohesion, the largest research project on co-operatives ever undertaken in Canada.
