2023 CCF Annual Report

Grantee Spotlight

Every year, we produce a video highlighting impactful programs that are supported by Co-operators Community Funds. Our most recent video features Alberta’s On Site Placement Services Association that helps clients in their employment journey. About 93% of the clients they support face mental health challenges that prevent them from maintaining long-term work. By offering employment support and training programs, the agency helps build confidence, and contributes to a more inclusive community.

Indigenous Youth Employability Initiative

Through this initiative, we will improve Indigenous youth employability and representation in the workforce and enhance their competitiveness in the labour market.

“Youth need to see themselves employed in the positions they may dream about. It is the employer’s obligation to make that vision more feasible.”

-Wacey Littlelight, The Howl Experience

Co-operators Community Funds Investment Portfolio

Our CCF portfolio allocates 70% of assets to a mix of impact investments, transition investments, and smaller-scale community-impact investments. We challenge the traditional view that investments are solely to make money. We advocate for the broader impact of a foundation’s investments, beyond just financial returns.
