Let’s Celebrate Co-op Week: October 11th to 17th

Co-operatives are based on the values of self-helpself- responsibility, democracyequalityequity and solidarity. Co-operative members believe in the values of honesty, opennesssocial responsibility and caring for others.

There are seven international co-operative principles by which Co-op’s follow.

  • Voluntary and Open Membership
  • Democratic Member Control 
  • Member Economic Participation 
  • Autonomy and Independence 
  • Education, Training and Information
  • Co-operation among Co-operatives 
  • Concern for Community 

A Co-op can provide goods to its members – like a food store, or farm equipment supply store. A co-op can provide a service to its members – like a co-operative health centre, or a childcare co-op.

We are proud to be a Co-operative that serves a common goal or purpose which is

“Caring for our Community”
