Federated Co-op’s annual program supports local communities

Federated Co-operatives Ltd. is continuing its Co-op Community Spaces Program again this year. The program raises money to help protect, beautify, and improve local spaces in communities served by Co-op stores.

This year’s projects range from two new greenhouses in Salt Spring Island, B.C., to an accessible playground in Rosetown, Sask., and a greenhouse for a community farm in Red Deer, Alta. (shown here). Since 2015, Co-ops have given $13.5 million to 189 capital projects across western Canada.
