About this Event


In Canada, nearly 200,000 business owners will retire in the next ten years. This phenomenon will be comparable in the U.S. and Europe.

The unprecedented scale of this phenomenon means that many businesses are at risk of not finding individual buyers -- or having only foreign competitors to sell to.

Business transfer to employees using the co-operative model appears increasingly to be a very promising option to maintain and develop locally owned businesses and employment in many places.


Tools have been created by co-operative networks to facilitate effective business succession to employees.


Partner organizations are also involved in business succession, including financial institutions, trade unions and public and non-profit agencies.


Come and be inspired by the practices in a variety of different countries, network with other players concerned with this issue, and grow your expertise!

This bilingual event (English-French) is aimed at all consultants, professionals and other stakeholders working in economic and social development.
