Co-op week is celebrated in Canada each year during the third week of October. The Co-op is proud to offer many great benefits to its members with the first and most obvious being CO-OP EQUITY & CASH BACK. Tofino Co-op is giving more than $413,000 cash back to our members this year!! Co-ops return the earnings from their operations to their members in the form of equity and when they are in a position to do so, a portion of each member’s equity is paid in cash. The equity and cash back is distributed in proportion to their purchases. This year the patronage rebate to our members is 5%. The Board of Directors will be handing out cheques on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 to Thursday October 20, 2016 between 9am – 4pm.
