2017 Banquet Dinner & Fundraiser

Provincial Banquet Dinner & Fundraiser

On Thursday, September 28, 2017, On Co-op, in partnership with the Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF) is hosting a very special evening to celebrate the awesomeness that are Ontario's co-operatives and credit unions, and to commemorate our 15th and CDF's 70th anniversaries, and Canada's 150th birthday!

Leaders, directors, stakeholders, employees and members of co-operatives from across the province are invited to join us for the celebratory evening, which will include an opening keynote address by Kelly McGiffin, President and CEO of FirstOntario Credit Union and CDF Board Director, a three-course seated meal, fantastic live entertainment by The Dreamboats (be sure to bring your dancing shoes and partners), a live auction, and the presentation of CCA's/CDF's 2017 Ontario Global Co-operator Award!

The evening will provide a unique networking opportunity between co-operatives and credit unions in Ontario, and close off the 2017 Provincial Co-op Conference taking place earlier in the day, while launching the 33rd annual Credit Union Directors' Forum, starting the next day.

Most importantly, all the proceeds rasied from this event will go towards supporting CDF's efforts to alleviate poverty through their domestic and international co-op and credit union development programs around the world.

Seating is limited, so register and purchase a Banquet ticket ($115 + HST) - and maybe even bid on a live auction item.. and join us for what will be a fantastic evening! Click HERE to REGISTER now!

Note: The Banquet  is open to anyone wishing to come, and you do not have to be a delegate of either conference to attend. It was the intention of CDF to issue tax receipts for anyone purchasing a ticket to the event. However, upon further review by Canada Review Agency (CRA), we cannot provide tax receipts for banquet ticket purchases. Contributing factors behind the CRA’s guidance not to issue receipts include: On Coop is not a charitable organization and the event is not being run as a true third-party fundraiser.  

CDF Seeking Banquet Sponsors

To help make this event possible, CDF is looking for organizations to sponsor the event, and to donate items - or cash towards the purchase of items - for the live auction. Please view their new Sponsorship Proposal, available in the Downlaods section of the right-hand toolbar, for more information on how you can help, and the ways in which the CDF can recognize your organization for its support. You can also contact Gonzalo by phone at 1-866-266-7677 or by email at [requires javascript] for more informaton or to pledge your support.
