About this coop:

The Co-operators is a leading Canadian-owned, multi-product insurance and financial services organization with more than $40.3 billion in assets under administration. Within our three core areas of operation — Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance, Life insurance, and institutional investments — we employ 5,017 staff members. We are supported by 512 exclusive agents with 688 retail outlets, four contact centres and one call centre for our travel insurance business, and an extensive national broker network. We also serve approximately 375 credit unions with a total of more than five million members.

Volunteers from The Co-operators and Conexus Credit Union joined the North Central Family Centre (NCFC), to clean up their neighbourhood. For both of these businesses located in Regina, Saskatchewan, the volunteer initiative is part of the International Year of Cooperatives as designated by the United Nations. In addition, The Co-operators supports their staff’s volunteer efforts by offering them two paid days per year to volunteer. “When you talk about co-operatives, it really means giving back to the community,” said Glenn Bohay, manager of community relations with The Co-operators. “It’s not all about profits.”
