Interested in becoming a Co-op member? Stop by our Grocery Store for a form!

As a co-op member, you are one of the owners of the co-op. To be a member, or owner, of Carleton Co-op means that you are required to invest $20 per year in share capital. The amount of share capital required by each member is determined by the Board of Directors. When you join, you will be required to pay $20 towards your share capital. After that, your share investment must be paid on an annual basis by December 31st.

Your primary responsibility is to support Carleton Co-op by purchasing as many of the goods and services you need from the co-operative.

Members are encouraged to:

  • provide comments and suggestions
  • attend annual meetings
  • accept nominations to serve on the Board of Directors
  • vote for members of the Board of Directors to represent your views
  • promote the co-operative to friends and family

Carleton Co-op does not belong to any one person. We depend on the support of hundreds of households like yours. Carleton Co-op is a business for people and is administered by those same people. So, unlike most other stores that are owned by large corporations controlled by profit-seeking investors, Carleton Co-op is owned and operated by local people, just like you. If you should leave the co-op for any reason, your share capital will be returned to you in accordance with the policies established by the Board of Directors.
