    Giving back to members, one green envelope at a time

    As a cooperative, we put a share of our profits directly back into the community through patronage and dividends. Each Spring, members look forward to a cheque arriving in the mail in a distinctive green envelope. We’ve given back over $16m (and counting) in total.

    Answers to your questions

    One share account will be opened separately from your day-to-day operating accounts for each membership.
    The key benefits to a share account means you become part of a cooperative and given voting rights in the democratic process as well as given back money each year in patronage and dividends.
    You can withdrawal from your share account so long as the appropriate share value remains. If you are a golden member then $5 must remain.
    Patronage is a calculated amount deposited back into your account in the spring of every year.
    The amount given back to each member depends on financial performance and the types of accounts held by each member. In 2021 juniors received $51 as a base amount.
