Microsoft Office 365 Migration Portal

These pages are for Co-op staff and contractors and will contain instructions and background on the Co-op's move to the Office 365 platform for email, calendaring, file sharing and collaboration.


The Co-op has been investigating a unified online office suite for many years in the hopes of improving upon the current set of un-integrated and often ad hoc practices we have now. It was hoped that we could land on an open source solution, however none was deemed to meet all requirements, and so ultimately in 2022 the decision was made to go with MS Office 365. Consultants were brought on board in October 2022 to help develop a migration strategy and plan, with the initial project commencing in earnest in December 2022. A more extensive timeline is available below as well as a more detailed Frequently Asked Questions section
