Quesnel’s Co-op outlet changes name

The local outlet is part of a larger co-operative that has voted to change its name to better reflect the geographical area it covers.

Quesnel’s Co-op outlet and card lock is part of a larger co-operative business that recently changed its name to the Four Rivers Co-Operative.

During the months of October and November 2016, a contest was held inviting inviting co-op members to submit suggestions for a new name for the business which serves five separate communities – Quesnel, Prince George, Houston, Terrace and Vanderhoof. The suggested names would represent the membership and the geographical area covered by the business.

More than 160 names were submitted for consideration. The co-operative board reviewed every submission and selected one name to be presented to the membership.

The name of Four Rivers Co-operative was vetted with B.C. Registries and held pending at the annual general meeting, April 24, 2017.

The membership approved this special resolution with a 66 per cent approval rate.

Documents were filed with B.C. Registries on April 25 and the board received confirmation on May 11 that the name was approved by the Registrar of Companies.

The board and the membership welcome everyone to the Four Rivers Co-operative.
