A conversation on the history of co-ops.

Dr. Brett Fairbairn has been researching co-operatives for over 30 years; as a Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, he has become one of the most notable academics in his field and on the history of co-ops — Dr. Fairbairn has over 80 publications!

Dr. Fairbairn will be leaving the University of Saskatchewan this year to take the position of President and Vice-Chancellor at Thompson Rivers University in BC; before he goes, we wanted to capture some of his reflections from his career in co-ops and share them with you! An experienced historian and much-loved professor, listening to Dr. Fairbairn is always a privilege – we think you’re really going to enjoy this one.
