Co-Operativism At Its Best

Download: 

The Co-operative Employment Partnership Program is a singular approach to self-employment that marries the strength of Nova Scotia’s co-operatives with the provincial welfare system. Launched five years ago and still going strong, CEPP backs the endeavours of social assistance recipients to form co-operatives with three things: a) vetting of business ideas by the Credit Union Central, b) a provincial equity investment (instead of a wage subsidy) to be repaid from co-op dividends, and c) a mentor co-operative that assists the fledgling under a management contract.
