In the Community
July 29, 2019

Social responsibility is our mandate

Supporting community is one of the seven principles that co-operatives are built on. At Mid Island Co-op, our social responsibility is as important as the services we provide to our members. 

Building our community

Mid Island Co-op supports a broad range of organizations, with priority given to those projects or organizations that build long-term capacity in our community. And our responsibility goes beyond our local community – we believe we have a responsibility to do business in a way that is environmentally sound and that encourages equality.
