The Canadian Worker Cooperative Federation (CWCF) is the RRSP trustee for New Dawn CEDIFs. The CWCF has been New Dawn’s RRSP trustee for the last three years.
The Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation is a national, bilingual grassroots membership organization of and for worker co-operatives, related types of co-operatives (multi-stakeholder co-ops and worker-shareholder co-ops), and organizations that support the growth and development of worker co-operatives. CWCF was incorporated in 1992.
In order to set up a self-directed RRSP (or transfer existing RRSPs from other financial institutions into a self-directed RRSP) an individual creates a self-directed contract under a federal government approved plan. The CWCF has such a plan which has been registered through Concentra Trust.
