Co-Op Atlantic is an association of persons who have voluntarily joined together to provide themselves with a business that can supply them with products and services at minimal cost. The control of the business is in the hands of its member-owners who are legally the owners. It is also an organization where democratic control is the practice; an organization controlled by people, rather than dollars; an organization where member-owners have one vote and one vote only, regardless of how much money they have accumulated in share capital. Co-ops are actively involved in a wide range of activities from securing employment to satisfying the economic and social needs of their members and the community as a whole. Today, co-operatives have diversified into almost all fields of business activities including, but not limited to: retail grocery stores, real estate and housing, transportation, industrial and commercial production, banking and credit institutions and day care... and the list is growing every day.
