If you are part-way through an incomplete document, clicking ‘Get Started’ takes you back to where you left off.
You must draft the constitution first and then the disclosure statement.
The drafting tool creates a MS Word format document. This format allows you to make changes and add attachments during drafting, or if required by the Registrar.
Please note: The Co-op Builder tool will not accommodate formatting for paragraphs, lists and tables. Information inserted in text boxes will lose any format. When you download your constitution and disclosure documents and check it for accuracy you will need to adjust any required formatting. If you intend to insert a table then you can insert after downloading.
