Why Support Associations?

Oikocredit Canada’s Support Associations are groups of volunteers whose members are engaged in promoting Oikocredit’s mission. Volunteer associations are part of a long-standing tradition in Oikocredit’s work. In addition to being active volunteers for Oikocredit, Support Associations are members of the Oikocredit International co-operative.

Oikocredit has two Support Associations in Canada – Oikocredit Canada and Oikocredit Canada Atlantic. Click on the regions to learn more about how you can get involved in your local Support Association.


Take part in our movement

Oikocredit is more than a place to invest your money. It's a place to invest your time.

Through our dedicated Support Association in Canada and around the world, we are helping to change the conversation about development. We are helping to introduce the idea that international development is not charity bestowed by the wealthy. It is solidarity between investors and borrowers. In our view, investment can help to transform lives in the developing world.

You can help to reframe the conversation by engaging through:

  • Social media: TwitterFacebookLinkedin - Instagram
  • Speaking about Oikocredit at your university, club, association or church. We'll show you how.
  • Lending your expertise or skills to our boards or one of our committees. We'll appreciate your contribution.
  • Spending some time on one of our international study tours to learn first-hand how Oikocredit is making a difference in developing countries.
