Want to know more? Here are some frequently asked questions and answers to get you started.
Membership to the Pembina Consumers Co-op (2000) Ltd. is open to Canadian and U.S.A. individuals over the age of 16. Membership is also available to groups such as joint memberships, partnerships, corporations and community-charitable organizations.
To become a member simply go to your local Pembina Co-op branch and ask for a membership application form and complete it on site. A membership fee will be applied which becomes a share investment to the co-op. Your application is then sent to the administration office for review and approval by the Board of Directors. Once approved, you will receive a membership card with your identification number and, with that, you become a member-owner of Pembina Co-op.
Being part of a co-operative means that you share in the equity and growth of the Co-op. Check the Membership Benefits section for more details.
A one-time membership fee of $10.00 is asked of you with your membership application. This becomes your purchase of a share of the co-op.
Every time you make a purchase at a Pembina Co-op location, you will be asked for your Pembina Co-op member number to record your transactions. This record of transactions is used to calculate the equity of the co-op. The more you purchase with your member number, the greater your share of the earnings. It literally pays to be a member.
Your Pembina Co-op member number is only applicable to Pembina Co-op locations and is not transferable to other co-operatives. Each co-op, while offering similar goods and services, operate independently with their own policies regarding equity and cash back to serve their own communities.
You can be a member at multiple co-operatives, but remember that each one is independent from the others.
