“Investors-Aid Co-operative of Canada is just one of over 10,000 co-operatives and credit unions providing products and services to over 10 million Canadians.
Like all co-operatives, we are an organization owned by our members. Co-operatives can provide virtually any product or service, and can be either a non-profit or for-profit enterprise.
Co-operatives exist in every sector of the economy and can touch every aspect of our lives. There are health care, funeral, workers’, housing, retail, child care, and financial co-ops (credit unions). And now there is Canada’s first co-operative for investors.
We provide a distinct values-based, member-owned and controlled alternative.

Like co-ops the world over, Investors-Aid is guided by 7 principles:1.    Voluntary and open membership
2.    Democratic member control
3.    Member economic participation
4.    Autonomy and independence
5.    Education, training, and information
6.    Co-operation among co-operatives
7.    Concern for communityMission StatementTo provide members education, publications, online tools, and discounts that help ensure low investment costs and fair returns to its members.

Profit-sharing

All members will participate in the Co-op’s success through dividends and/or credits.”
