Committed to co-ops

As a co-operatively owned and controlled organization, we build meaningful relationships with our member and the broader co-operative and credit union community. 

Our support of the broader co-operative sector includes:

Customized products and programs

Our goal is to be the preferred provider of financial security products and services to member and non-member co-operatives by offering customized products and services.

Co-op development and funding

In line with our co-operative principles of co-operation among co-operatives, we have always felt strongly about supporting emerging co-ops and promoting the co-op sector in Canada. Through our Co-operative Development Program, we are able to support Canadian co-ops with business development initiatives. 

Support for studies in co-operatives

To ensure future leadership in the co-operative sector, we are a major contributor to post-secondary education in the study of co-operatives.

Advocacy for the co-op sector

We work with our members and co-operative partners to educate members of Parliament about the benefits of the co-operative business model and issues of importance to our business, and to advocate for stronger partnerships.

Active participation in co-operative associations

We are actively involved in co-operative associations at the provincial, national and international levels to ensure the continued growth of the sector.

We provide financial assistance and technical expertise. Here are some of the co-operative associations we support:
