He\r\nalso had a reputation to uphold, as he was oftentimes known as “Santa Claus” because the\r\nCo-op Board of Directors would then accept\r\nand decide, with Aurèle’s recommendation,\r\non the amount of returns to members that\r\nwould be distributed to the Co-ops’ members.\r\n\r\namong the social economy organizations in\r\nNunavik.\r\n\r\nThe economic development department\r\nis responsible for planning, organizing and\r\nmanaging all projects related to economic development. Similarly, to strengthen the cooperative network in the South, I represent the\r\nFCNQ on different Board of Directors such\r\nas: Conseil québécois de la cooperation et de\r\nla mutualité (CQCM); Société de coopération\r\npour le développement international (SOCODEVI); Caisse d’économie solidaire Desjardins (CECOSOL ); Table des Fédérations\r\nSectorielles (cooperation among Federations\r\nof cooperatives in Québec); Regional Table\r\non Nunavik Social Economy, which is a newly\r\ncreated Table that encourages cooperation\r\n\r\nFrom June 2010
