    Coop talkSA PAGSISIMULA

    Nailunsand noong Oktubre taong 2009 matapos ang ilang konsultasyon na dinaluhan ng  ilang samahan at mga lider ng pamayanang Pinoy dito sa Metro Vancouver. Sa pagsisimula ay nakasama dito ang Multi Cultural Helping House Society, Filipino Social Workers Association of BC, Filipino In Richmond Society at Filipino Circle ng Parent Support Services Society. Naisagawa ang mga consultatation meeting at workshop na may titulong: “Coping with the Present Economic Crisis, a Cooperative Way” noong June at July 2009. Dito nakabuo ng mga task forces para magplano ng mga kailangang hakbang para isakatuparan ang pagbubuo ng isang Kooperatibang Pinoy.

    Bilang isang samahan ay nakapagtalaga  ito ng mga opisyales na siyang nagsimulang magplano at magpatupad ng mga programa at serbisyo bilang isang kooperatiba.

    Naging opisyal ang  One Filipino Cooperative of BC noong nabigyan ito ng Certificate of Registration ng BC Registry noong January 08, 2010.
