The Magrath Chamber invites you to attend a noon hour webinar at the Magrath Town Hall on Thu April 28th. The webinar entitled "Unleashing local capital" is a one hour webinar explaining how communities can raise capital to finance local business development through the sale of RRSP and TFSA eligible shares, by establishing Opportunity Development Co-operative.
This webinar provides information on how Albertan communities have used the co-operative structure to pool capital to finance local business development, allow for community ownership within local economic development, and to build strong communities.
Participants will learn about the recent progress in local investing using the co-operative structure, how they can start a co-operative in their own community, as well as key regulatory and policy issues pertaining to raising capital using RRSPs and TFSAs. The webinar also discusses how local investing can be used for business succession planning, community owned renewable energy and more.
