The Conversion to Cooperatives Project is interested in the conversion of Canadian private businesses to cooperatives, as a way to ensure their succession. Our presentation addresses some of the most interesting results found, by focusing more specifically on examples of conversions that may be of use to agricultural current or future entrepreneurs.

Le projet de recherche Conversion en coopératives s'intéresse à la conversion d'entreprises privées Canadiennes en coopératives, comme moyen d'en assurer la relève. Notre présentation aborde certains des résultats obtenus dans le cadre de cette recherche, en se concentrant plus spécifiquement sur des exemples de conversions pouvant être utiles aux entrepreneurs agricoles, actuels ou futurs.
