Members are owners. They have the ability to participate in the democratic process at their local association’s annual 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.

Become a member by purchasing a share in your local Co-op. Please speak to your local association for more detailed information on membership and its benefits. For general information about membership, please visit the Co-op Membership Benefits website.
