How Does it Work?
Our Co-op is owned by those who use it – the shoppers!
Buying a $50 membership means that you’ve purchased shares in the Kootenay Co-op, making you a lifetime Member-Owner!
Your lifetime membership will be active as soon as you purchase your shares (you are welcome to pay in five monthly instalments of $10 if you need). These shares are refundable and can be sold back to our Co-op.
Your membership can be used by immediate family members who live within the same household as you – your spouse, common-law partner, or children. Roommates, friends and extended family are NOT applicable and must have their own membership. Only the Member-Owner (the person whose name is on file for the membership) can vote in the AGM — one member, one vote. If another family member in your household would like to become a Member-Owner, vote in our AGM, or serve on our Board, they are welcome to purchase a membership under their own name.
