Message From The President
“While it is challenging, and sometimes a little unnerving, to ride the waves of resource-driven, boom-bust cycles, Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) and the Co-operative Retailing System (CRS) must take a leadership role to help our local economies grow.”
- Dusty MacDonald, President
Message From The CEO
“When most other organizations are pulling back and reducing operations, Co-op continues to invest in our home communities in Western Canada. We can attribute this to the diversity and long-term outlook of our organization, the resiliency of our retail co-operative member-owners and our ability to work together as a federation of co-operatives.”
- Scott Banda, CEO
