Biographical history

The British Columbia Cooperative Union was formed at a conference in 1944. The aim of the union was to oppose federal taxation proposals, to facilitate the development of the cooperative movement in B.C., and to link member societies with cooperatives in other provinces and with Cooperative Union of Canada. The Union represented the interests of a variety of cooperatives. The Union folded in 1972 and many of the services it provided were subsequently taken over by the B.C. Central Credit Union.
