Caring for the community

Co-op Social Responsibility

Co-op is dedicated to improving the lives of our community members. Whether through community support programs like food drives, donations through the Co-op Community Foundation or assisting charities and organizations around our city, we’ll continue to look out for our community and the people within it.

Perfect Meat
Perfect Meat

Fresh from the local farms and ranches all over Alberta, our meat isn’t just raised the right way, it’s prepared the right way too. Our Co-op Perfect line of meats includes naturally raised Canadian beef, bison, chicken, duck, goat and pork with no added growth hormones.

 

 

Recycling
Recycling

As a socially responsible company, we strive to reduce waste and increase diversion of recyclable materials at all times. In 2014 we generated 9,262 tonnes of total waste and diverted 5,933 tonnes for recycling. That’s an overall diversion rate of 64% compared to 56% in 2013.

 

People Leadership

We know how important our employees are and that’s why it’s our goal to make Co-op a great place to work. We provide competitive compensation, extensive retail and management training, and career advancement opportunities for all of our employees. Last year, we contributed nearly $100,000 in employee scholarships.

Plus, we offer fun volunteer activities including our Charity Golf Classic, YWCA Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, and the Parent Link Fall Festival. Great ways to help the community we’re all a part of.
