In 2015 Co-op sent out $35.1 million to its members. Of this, $10.8 million was paid in shares and $24.3 million was paid in cash.

Annual Member Refund: Understanding your T4A

T4As are mailed in January of each year to members who received a member refund and statement in February for the prior year.  If you did not receive a T4A, please contact us here or call (403-219-6025, option 2).

Calgary Co-op is required by the federal government to report all member refunds paid in excess of $100.00 and to withhold 15% of the amount earned over $100.00 and remit it to the Canada Revenue Agency. The T4A reflects the member refund made to you in the previous year. Member Refunds are not necessarily taxable. Member Refunds earned on consumer goods (i.e. groceries, household items, gasoline for private car use) are not subject to tax. You are entitled to claim the tax withheld as outlined on your T4A as a credit when you file your personal income tax (write on the face of your T4A "Consumer Goods Only"). Instructions for including this on your personal income tax form are provided on the back of your T4A under Recipient. (Member refunds are normally only taxable for businesspersons, farmers, contractors, etc.).

Annual Member Refund

We send the Annual Member Refund to members in late February of each year. Each year's refund will also contain the voting ballot for the Director Election of that year.
