WE CARE

COMMUNITY MINDED

Co-op helps build, feed and fuel Western Canada. We’ve been doing this for more than a century. As a co-operative, we’re not only working for your community, we’re owned by your community. We embed sustainability in our business by planning and investing for the long term, with our communities and environment in mind. We work to create jobs and partner with other local businesses. Our profits don’t leave the community. They go back into it – and back to you.


The Co-op Helps nomination period is now closed. Nominators will be notified if their entries are successful. Thank you to everyone who participated and shared the positive actions of individuals during the COVID-19 challenge.

Co-op Helps is our way of supporting individuals and communities through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Co-op has made a $250,000 donation to food banks in Western Canada and in the coming months will be looking to help rebuild local communities through additional support for charitable and community organizations. This is in addition to the contributions local Co-ops are making in their respective communities.
