These sessions will highlight key areas of the business plan, governance structure and purpose of the new Investment Co-op.

“We are seeking individual and corporate investors who wish to diversify a portion of their investment portfolios locally, and who want to make an impact in the communities where they live”, Yesh says.

Membership in the Investment Co-op is open to all: individuals, corporations, governments and first nations. All sessions are open to the public and admission is free. There is limited seating in each community so please RSVP right away.
