Located on Vancouver Island, BC, Mid Island Co-op has been in business since 1959 and was created by local citizens as an alternative way to provide themselves with goods and services. We currently have more than 80,000 members throughout our territory, spanning from Cowichan Valley to Port Hardy.

In order to serve our members better, we are continuing to expand and develop Mid Island Co-op throughout the Mid Vancouver Island Region.

All of our profits stay in the communities we serve through re-investment in the Co-op, equity allocations to our member-owners and through contributions to community organizations and local youth.

For more information about Mid Island Co-op, please visit our Membership Tab.


Co-op is a different kind of business – we’re truly local. Your local Co-op was built by you and built for you. Each Co-op in Western Canada is independent, so it offers the products and services needed by the communities it serves.

Information about our locations and services can be found on our Hours & Services page.

As a co-operative, we’re not only working for your community, we’re owned by your community. We embed sustainability in our business by planning and investing for the long term, with our communities and environment in mind.

 At Mid Island Co-op, we care about our families, friends and neighbours, as well as the communities where we live, work, and play – that’s why we are committed to supporting our community. 

When you shop Co-op, you’re choosing a business that keeps 100% of its profits in your community. Our profits help to provide great jobs, build welcoming facilities and support local groups and charitable organizations that make our community a better place to live.
