Co-op Week is celebrated in Canada each year during the third week of October. Co-op Week is a time to reflect on the contributions the co-operative sector has made to the lives of Canadians and celebrate the impact that co-operatives have in our communities.
Co-op Week has been proclaimed across Canada every October since 1982. International Credit Union Day has been celebrated worldwide on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
Co-op Week dates each year are from the Sunday to the Saturday of the week in which International Credit Union Day falls (the third Thursday of October).
