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.


Change to Oikocredit’s Managing Board

Change to Oikocredit’s Managing Board

laura-pool.jpgMay 04 | 2020

Laura Pool, Director of Finance & Risk, has decided to leave Oikocredit for personal reasons to pursue a career change. She will continue in her position until the end of the year.

Earlier in the year, Laura informed Oikocredit’s Supervisory Board of her intention to leave Oikocredit. However, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, she has kindly agreed to extend her notice period to help ensure continuity and stability at this unprecedented time. We’re very grateful to Laura for her flexibility in this regard, and for her dedication to Oikocredit.

Laura will continue in her position until the end of December 2020, which we believe will provide us with enough time to find a suitable replacement.

Oikocredit’s Supervisory Board and Managing Board are thankful to Laura for the invaluable contributions she has made over the past two and a half years, particularly the work she has done to strengthen Oikocredit’s Risk and Finance functions.

We look forward to continuing to work with Laura over the coming months, and to her ongoing contribution to Oikocredit during this exceptional period.
