Management and Membership in Canadian Co-Operatives
AbstractCertain basic principles distinguish co-operative corporation from an ordinary business corporation. With these principles in mind, Mr. Ish critically examines the law with respect to the management and membership of Canadian co operatives. While provincial statutes are compared and contrasted, the author places particular emphasis on the provisions of the Canada Co-operative Associations Act. More specifically, the article deals with the distribution of cor porate control, the qualifications, appointments, duties and removal of directors, and the admission, termination and voting rights of the members of co operative.
