Why you should become a member

YOU BECOME OWNER
Cooperatives are collectively owned by members. The coop's objective is more to meet the needs of its member-owners than to maximize profits for shareholders.
YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN DECISION-MAKING
A member can take part in democratic decisions and express himself on the major orientations of his cooperative by taking part in the general assembly and having the possibility of being elected to the board of directors.

Cooperatives contribute to the development of their community by paying donations and sponsorships and by reserving employment for students.
