Alexandra Wilson discovered a passion for co‑operatives when, as a teenager, she led her neighbours in a successful fight to turn 260 units of low-rent housing into a cooperative. Her involvement in saving her own home led to a career spanning 47 years in the cooperative housing sector. A member of numerous co-operatives in Canada and France, Alexandra serves today on the boards of the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa, The Co-operators Group (a large cooperative insurer), the Canadian Co-operative Investment Fund and the International Cooperative Alliance. In her capacity as chair of the ICA’s Cooperative Identity Advisory Group, Alexandra is leading the current global consultation on the co-operative identity.
