Our Co-op was built to serve and grow our community. That’s why we return our profits to our members and support the causes and programs that matter to you.

A strong social conscience has always been part of how your Co-op operates. Our business has been built on a foundation of community involvement and service. We will run a strong, financially viable business that returns profits to our members and we invest in the communities in which we operate. We are part of your hometown and care about and support the causes that matter to you, your community and neighbouring communities.

Co-op communities are diverse and so are their needs. We get it. We’ve designed our programs to help our local communities to thrive and enable organizations to do what you do best for the betterment of our community.
