The East End Food Co-op is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who serve to represent the interests of members by upholding the ideals set out in the co-op’s official mission. These are:
- To distribute high-quality nutritious food and products in order to foster health and vitality in the community, and to reflect an optimum number of healthful affordable choices for our members and the community at large
- To associate with other co-operatives, and to advance the co-operative movement under the Principles of Co-operation
EEFC is regulated by the British Columbia Co-operative Association Act and must report annually to the Superintendent of Co-operatives with the British Columbia Ministry of Finance and Corporate Relations.
Our constitution and bylaws set out official proceedings for members, directors and staff.
As a co-operative we are also guided by principles that underscore the traditional of sharing resources and ideas. A overview of these principles can be found on the International Co-operative Alliance website.
