Members are owners! As a member, you will have the ability to participate in the democratic process at our annual general meeting, which includes asking questions, proposing/voting on resolutions, becoming a board member and electing board members.
Our profits are your profits
As owners, members also receive a portion of any profits earned by their local co-operative association. Over the past five years, local associations across Western Canada have returned almost $1.4 billion to their members.
The amount members potentially receive is based on a percentage of their purchases throughout the year, which is distributed in in two ways: annual cash back or equity. Like a savings account, every member has an equity account that grows over time. Decisions and policies on profit-sharing are made locally and vary between co-operative associations.
Becoming a member is easy. You can:
