ANAK celebrates 2012 International Year of Cooperatives

Members of ANAK Publishing Worker Co-op (a subsidiary of ANAK Inc.) were at the Manitoba Legislative Building today to help launch the United Nations International Year of Cooperatives. 

Minister responsible for co-operative development, and Family Services and Consumer Affairs, Gord Mackintosh celebrated the importance of more than 400 co-operatives to the province’s economy.  “Co-operatives help build communities by creating jobs and keep wealth in the community by returning dividends to members,” Mackintosh said.  “They are especially important in rural and remote communities where they are often the only providers of key services.”
