Realize Co-op

Formerly United Community Services Co-operative, Realize Co-op is an enterprise services co-operative offering premier business consulting, knowledge leadership and executive search services to clients across British Columbia. The organization also exists to develop the social economy sector in BC through knowledge leadership, capacity development, institution building and stronger relationships with government and the private sector.

Founded in 1997, Realize Co-op has grown to over 140 members, representing over $400,000,000 in annual revenues in a wide range of sectors including: community social services, environmental conservation, the arts, the local food movement and library services. Our members share a vision of a stronger, more impactful social economy sector that benefits people and communities across BC. They came together to form a co-operative dedicated to finding collective solutions to these complex challenges in a rapidly changing provincial and global economy.
