Membership Matters More
Swan Valley Co-op is a different kind of business. And that difference begins with membership.
You don’t need to be a member to shop at Swan Valley Co-op, but you’ll be missing out on the benefits of belonging to our business.
At Swan Valley Co-op, membership isn’t a rewards program. It means you own part of the co-op. As an owner, you have the ability to participate in the democratic decision-making process by asking questions, voting on resolutions, electing board members or even sitting on the board yourself.
Each year, Swan Valley Co-op returns a part of profits back to you — our members — in cash based on how much you shop and how well the business performs. Over the past five years, Co-ops across Western Canada have returned almost $1.4 billion to their members. Some profit is returned as equity, which is like a savings account or RRSP that grows over time.
We’re more than just a place to shop. We’re a business built to support our community and meet the needs of our members.
Becoming a member is easy. You can:
- Apply in person at one of our locations, or
- Apply online! Simply click here to start the application process.
$10 is the one-time cost to be a lifetime member of Swan Valley Co-op. No annual fees, no renewals.
