TAKE THE CO-OP CHALLENGE: October 15 - 21, 2006

From October 15 to October 21, members of Canada’s co-operatives and credit unions can test their knowledge of all things co-operative in our first-ever national Co-op Week On-line Trivia Contest.

The contest was conceived of by Desjardins Group and ran successfully in Quebec last year. This year, with the assistance of the Canadian Co-operative Association, the Conseil Canadien de la Coopération and the Conseil de la coopération du Québec, it is going national!

Participants who correctly answer two of the five trivia questions will be entered into a draw for prizes that have been generously donated by co-ops across the country.

To enter, go to http://www.coopscanada.coop/ during Co-op Week (October 15 - 21) and click on the contest link.

This year’s Co-op Week theme, OWN YOUR FUTURE!®, recognizes how, through co-operatives and credit unions, people are accomplishing together what they cannot do alone. They are taking ownership of their future, for themselves, for their families, and for their communities.

More information on Co-op Week, this year’s theme, and a Message from the Prime Minister can be found on CCA’s website at http://www.coopscanada.coop/aboutcoop/coopweek/2006coopweek/. Statements made in the House of Commons will be posted during the week.
