Hi, Ja-son. Thanks for the question! I understand that the BC Coop Association has provided you with what support they can. You might also check out their Cultivating Co-ops guide to co-operative development now on their website as a free download.
As with any co-operative, you will need to establish broad-based support from members or potential members to be successful. Sounds like you’re at that challenging point of turning your vision into a shared idea.
All the best to you!
