Cooperatives are leaders in building a strong economy and a healthy, socially vibrant Manitoba.

MCA brings Manitoba co-ops together in an effort to build a strong co-op community. Our members are diverse and represent approximately 150 individual co-ops in various cooperative sectors.

Membership is open to Manitoba cooperatives and like minded organizations who can reasonably use the services of MCA and support our objectives.
