Otter Co-op Membership

Co-op offers lifetime membership benefits, including the promise of high-quality products and services at competitive prices. Everyone is welcome to shop at a Co-op location and everyone is invited to become a Co-op member.

Members are owners. They have the ability to participate in the democratic process at their local association’s annual meeting, which includes asking questions, proposing/voting on resolutions, becoming a board member and electing board members.


Our Profits are Your Profits

As owners, members also receive a portion of any profits earned by their local co-operative association. Over the past five years, local associations across Western Canada have returned almost $1.4 billion to their members.

The amount members potentially receive is based on a percentage of their purchases throughout the year, which is distributed in in two ways: annual cash back or equity. Like a savings account, every member has an equity account that grows over time. Decisions and policies on profit-sharing are made locally and vary between co-operative associations.


Membership Benefits

For a once-in-a-lifetime $10 fee, you earn the following perks:

  • Cash and Equity Rewards based on our profits and your yearly purchases
  • Voting Rights at our Annual General Meeting regarding our Board of Directors and Rules
