Who We Are

Over one hundred years strong, with our mind on our members. That's your Lloydminster & District Co-op.

We're locally owned and locally operated, and have been since our first day back in 1914.

When you're a Lloyd Co-op member, you literally own a piece of our Co-op. We work together to build our communities and share in our accomplishments, because they're yours too.  

Thank you for your loyalty. And thank you for confirming, day after day, why the Co-op way is the better way.

Mission Statement

Member owned and controlled, we build our communities through quality products and exceptional customer service.

Core Values

- The Lloydminster & District Co-operative exists to offer value to our member/customers, through the products and services we provide

-We will be competitively priced throughout our various departments

-We will provide quality products and superior services throughout all departments

-We will act in a fiscally responsible manner, to ensure the long-term viability of our Association

-We will recognize and respect the contribution and effort of all employees

-We will support the communities we serve

- We will promote the Co-operative philosophy and principles through education of employees, members, youth and the community at large

- We will continue to explore opportunities that will add economic value to the Association and its members

- We will, after diligent analysis, divest, reorganize, or revamp the Association in areas where it does not possess a reasonable chance of achieving economic success

The Co-operative Principles

1. Open, Voluntary Membership- Co-operatives are voluntary organizations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.

2. Democratic Control- Co-operatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary co-operatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and co-operatives at other levels are organized in a democratic manner.

3. Member Economic Participation- Members contribute equally to, and democratically control, the capital of their co-operative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the co-operative. Members usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing the co-operative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefitting members in proportion to their transactions within the co-operatives; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.

4. Autonomy and Independence- Co-operatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements with other organizations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their co-operative autonomy.

5. Education- Co-operatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public- particulary young people and opinion leaders- about the nature and benefits of co-operation.

6. Co-operation Among Co-operatives- Co-operatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the co-operative movement by working together through local, national, regional, and international structures.

7. Concern for Community- Co-operatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.
