As Western Canadians, let's enjoy the spaces that bring us together.
Co-op Community Spaces has been developed to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. In keeping with our ongoing commitment to invest in the communities we serve, Co-op will contribute up to $2 million to help support projects that improve the places Canadians meet, play, learn and share.
In the past 3 years close to $400,000 has been donated to projects that improve the quality of life for the people who live and visit the communities within South Country Co-op's trading area.
