The Manitoba Cooperative Association (MCA) Inc. is a provincial association of cooperative organizations, created by its' members to enhance and support the development of a united, growing and influential cooperative movement in Manitoba.
There are close to 400 co-ops in Manitoba. These co-ops increase communities’ sustainable economic capacity and develop leadership and a stronger sense of community support.
