Based in the country's capital, Ottawa, the Canadian Co-operative Association (CCA) is an organization that represents a breadth of co-ops in industries such as agriculture, food, services, retail, housing and health among others.

In an blog post called "A look back at the International Year of Co-operatives," Kevin Dorse of Social Finance goes into how the United Nations called 2012 the International Year of Co-operatives. (Oh, the UN, always naming things.) More specifically, he wrote about the specific Canadian impact on cooperative entrepreneurship

CCA has over 2000 members in terms of individual organizations and also works in a number of countries: at this time, over 40. One of the association's preeminent concerns is reaching out to the federal government.
