Submissions

Giving businesses the choice to operate as a co-operative or mutual needs the regulatory regimes to fit. The BCCM’s submissions to government inquiries have led to amended legislation for fairer operating conditions, access to capital and grants allocation. These submissions also help educate the wider community on the benefits of co-operatives and mutuals across the economy.

For information on the BCCM’s submissions please contact Karl Coombe.
