Memberships

Process to Become a Member

  • Organizations interested in joining Cooperation Canada must meet the following criteria:
  • Be federally or provincially incorporated in Canada as a non-profit;
  • Have activities relating to international cooperation; and
  • Have been active in Canada for at least two years.
  • When the organization is ready to present its application, it must follow these steps:
  • Fill out the Application Form
  • Indicate in the application form how they plan to be in compliance with the Code of Ethics within three (3) years of membership approval.
  • Submit the following documents in the Application Form:
  • Last annual report
  • Audited statements
  • Letters patent
  • By-laws
  • Have two (2) current members of Cooperation Canada fill this recommendation form, which allows the membership committee to get first-hand accounts of the organization's work and ethical commitments.
  • Once the Application form and Support letters are received, the Membership Committee (composed of Board members) reviews the application based on:
  1. Likeliness to comply with the Code of Ethics;
  2. Current or potential contributions and/or engagement in the sector; and
  3. Specific expertise or experience that enhances the diversity of our membership.
  • Criteria 1 and 2 are required for potential members. The committee then makes a recommendation to the Board of Directors on the application, and the Board makes the final decision. If the application is rejected, the applicant may reapply two years after the date of the original application. Applications accepted by the Board during a given year are ratified by members at the annual general meeting.
