WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN A CO-OP?

  • Page Views 5136
  • If you want to belong to a democratic organization that is owned and controlled by the people who use its services, an organization that can successfully compete in the marketplace without abandoning the values and principles that set it apart from other businesses, and an organization that returns its profits to the community, then you share many of the same values and priorities as the millions of people around the world who are already members of co-operatives and credit unions.

    Co-operatives and credit unions recognize the importance of people and communities defining their own needs and working together to meet those needs. They are a powerful and democratic way to put decision-making into the hands of those who need and use the services. Co-operatives and credit unions are directed locally and invested in locally. Surplus profits are returned to the members and, therefore, remain within the community. (source: www.coopscanada.coop)
