About Us



Founded in 1909, UFA is one of Canada’s larges​t and most dynamic co-operatives and has grown from a small-scale local co-operative into an extensive retail operation with over 110,000 members. Our businesses include agriculture, petroleum, construction and outdoor adventure.

We are a progressive and diversified business that provides the products, services and solutions our owners and customers in rural communities need to successfully run their operations.

Although we have grown and changed over the years, at our heart we remain committed to rural life. That commitment inspires everything we do and is reflected in our vision, mission and values.
