Presentation of the enterprise
WEBTV.COOP is a website belonging to the solidarity co-op WEBTV that offers democratic institutions, organizations, and interest groups an opportunity to be both “in solidarity” and “solitary.” In solidarity, by bringing these networks together so members can make connections with other social actors who have historically been the agents of social progress; and solitary, by making each network visible within a shared platform that showcases their specific contributions.
An ethical platform, WEBTV.COOP has no advertising and refuses to market personal information related to its visitors’ online activities. Its servers are subject to the laws of Canada and Québec, and not those of foreign jurisdictions. Within the world of the new communication technologies, WEBTV.COOP has the mandate of promoting the values of social economy in relation to emerging cultural practices and citizen-led movements.
“Risq’s investment in 2008 enabled us to complete the capital required to acquire the initial equipment for webcasting. This was financed by the issuance of preferred shares to members and the financial aid of cooptel.”
Pierre-Alain Cotnoir, President
