The Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation (CASC) is planning a collected edition of articles on the relationship between co-‐operatives and higher education in Canada. Historically, the co-‐operative sector has frequently worked closely with institutions of higher education, benefitting from shared values and common interests in education and community development. In the changing political, social and economic landscape in the country, there is arguably even more need and opportunities for collaboration between these two sectors. The purpose of this proposed collection is both to offer reflections on the history of co-‐operation between co-‐operatives and the higher education sector and to examine contemporary opportunities and challenges for closer collaboration.
