Participation Policy

At its October meeting, the CEHL Board approved an Active Membership Program Policy recommended to it by the Participation Policy Advisory Group. Reflecting the role of co-ops in determining their own active membership arrangements, the policy is entitled Co-ops Developing Active Membership Requirements and Policy.

The final policy follows an extensive engagement process with the broader Program that included:

  • nine regional workshops
  • two conference workshops
  • three online surveys.

In total, approximately 250 individuals contributed to the development of the policy through these engagement activities.

The policy provides the parameters within which co-ops will determine their own active membership requirements. Importantly, the policy also provides for co-ops to develop a pathway to respond to and resolve situations where a co-op member is failing to meet their active membership requirements.

The policy is now available via the CEHL website. In developing the policy, PPAG wanted to ensure that it gave a fresh and future-focussed approach to what has been a contentious Program topic. PPAG also developed a policy preamble that sits alongside the final policy. The preamble is designed to provide important context for the policy, so you are asked to read the preamble prior to considering the policy.

Co-ops are encouraged to review the policy, which is available on the Co-op Resource Centre section of the website. For a co-op dealing with a current participation issue, please speak to your CDC.
