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.


Oikocredit Canada launches marketing competition for students

Oikocredit Canada launches marketing competition for students

Do you know what it takes to reach millennials? We want to talk to you.

Millennials are not satisfied with the anonymity of traditional investments and the lack of investor knowledge of where money is going.

Impact investing is the solution. Through organizations like Oikocredit, investments are made so that they benefit people and the planet while still earning a reasonable return for the investor. But the problem is awareness. Many millennials have not heard of impact investing or Oikocredit and do not fully understand what it is.

To combat this, Oikocredit Canada is launching its first ever Canada-wide competition to challenge students to break down impact investing and Oikocredit in an engaging and creative way.
