Along with the Memorandum of Association, the Rules are the foundation of a cooperative association. They lay out the basic guidelines of the operation of the cooperative, such as how members become members, how general meetings work, the duties of directors, and many other matters. Our Rules are available as a PDF for download and are designed to be printed out double-sided.

The 171 Rules are conveniently indexed in a table of contents, and after the Rules is a set of annotations (starting on p. 37) that describe precisely where and in what particulars our Rules deviate from the standard set of Rules provided in Appendix B of the BC Cooperative Association Regulation.

As always, if you are interested in learning more, please feel free to contact the directors at
