Co-operatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who elect representatives as their board of directors who in turn hire the management of their local association. Lifetime membership is a one-time cost of $5 and can be purchased at any of our staffed locations.

We are proud to be part of the communities we do business in and take pride in being a community builder. We contribute to many local organizations and feel it is important to support our local businesses as well as Canadian suppliers. We purchase from over 40 local suppliers to increase sustainability within our own communities.

Our High Performance Gasoline and Premium EP3000 Diesel is refined at the Co-op Refinery in Regina, SK and customers can take pride that the fuel they put in their tanks is from one supplier.
