Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Beausejour Co-op Memberships.


Why do I have to provide my SIN number to be a Co-op Member?

The Income Tax Act requires Co-ops to collect SINs from prospective members. The SIN number is used for income reporting only to Revenue Canada. If you do not provide it, you will be unable to become a member at Beausejour Co-op.


When are equity statements mailed out? 

Traditionally, Beausejour Co-op annually mails out equity statements and cheques around the first week of July. You will only receive an equity cheque if you qualify. To find if you qualify, contact the admin.


Where can I use my Beausejour Co-op Membership number?

We have 8 locations where you can use your Beausejour Membership number. 

  1. Beausejour Food Store
  2. Beausejour Food Store (pharmacy)
  3. Beausejour Gas Bar
  4. Beausejour Bulk & Cardlock
  5. Oakbank Food Store
  6. Lac du Bonnet Gas Bar
  7. Pinawa Gas Bar
  8. Whitemouth Cardlock


Can I purchase a membership number that would be the same as my Red River Co-op number?

Yes you can, BUT only if your Red River number is larger than 100,000. You will still have two separate memberships that will generate two different sets of equity statements and cheques. But you will only have one number to remember.


What is the Universal Membership number?

This is a special series of 500,000 numbers that represent memberships in three different Co-ops. Beausejour Co-op, Pembina Co-op and Red River Co-op have agreed to sell one membership number that will work at all three Co-ops and all their locations across Manitoba. When updating a membership it has to be done by all three Co-ops so they will have the same information. The cost of this membership is $25.00, because you are purchasing shares and memberships at all three Co-ops. To purchase this type of membership please go to our Admin Office.
