Scope and Content
The file consists of lists of U.F.A. Locals photocopied from the 1915 and 1916 annual reports of the U.F.A.; list of old U.F.A. Locals (ca. 1960-1966) arranged by sub-district, with names and addresses of their secretaries; names and addresses of delegates and directors; and a printout (1965) listing the Locals in alphabetical order.
Administrative History
Locals of the U.F.A. were grouped into sub-districts which elected delegates. The delegates elected a director from each district of the U.F.A. They also attended the annual conference of the U.F.A Central Co-operative Association. This structure remained in place after the reorganization of the U.F.A. in 1948-1949, but ceased to exist upon the winding up of U.F.A. Central Co-op in 1966.

The fonds consists of the constitution and bylaws, minutes, annual financial reports and other documents of the Wetaskiwin Co-op Refineries Limited, and the constitution and bylaws of Wetaskiwin U.F.A. Co-operative Association Limited.
Administrative History
In 1916 several United Farmers of Alberta locals in the Wetaskiwin district organized a bulk goods purchasing consortium, the Westaskiwin District Association of the United Farmers of Alberta. In 1917 it was incorporated as the Wetaskiwin U.F.A. Co-operative Association Limited. In 1931 it established an oil refinery, but apparently it was not capitalized enough to operate on a competitive scale. In 1936 Wetaskiwin Co-op Refineries Limited was incorporated for the purpose of manufacturing and dealing in petroleum products. It never succeeded in building a refinery, but in 1937 it opened a fuel outlet in Wetaskiwin. In 1999 its assets were transferred to the UFA Co-op.

Administrative History
Onoway U.F.A. Local No. 131 was organized in the 1910s. By 1919 it was pooling its members' economic resources by shipping livestock and purchasing bulk quantities of feed, coal, and twine. The Local apparently became inactive in 1942. In 1949 some former members organized the Onoway F.U.A. Local No. 527, a Local of the Farmers' Union of Alberta. This organization apparently became inactive in 1950.

Administrative History
Associated with the execu­tive and administrative capaci­ties of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd., Mr. Norman F. Priestley retired in January 1951. A member of a family from Yorkshire, England, who had been active in the consumer co-operative movement origi­nated by the Rochdale Pio­neers, Mr. Priestley came to Edmonton early in the century and homesteaded at Onoway, 40 miles northwest of the city. In 1904, the organization of farm people in defence of their industry was just beginning. From that early period onward, Mr. Priestley missed no oppor­tunity to contribute to its de­velopment. He graduated from the University of Alberta with his Bachelor of Arts in 1916 and then enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. On re­turning from overseas, he was ordained to the Methodist Ministry. For many years, he was vice-president of the Leth­bridge UFA Federal Constitu­ency Association. Engaging in research work at Lethbridge, he became acting secretary in the Alberta Institute of Co­operation. Under the Canada Wheat Board Surplus Trust Fund, he produced a brochure on co-operation for the schools of agriculture. In January, 1931, Mr. Priest­ley was elected as vice-presi­dent of United Farmers of Alberta. In 1940, he resigned as vice-president in order to de­vote his time to the general management of the business. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1951 (from The United Farmer 1976 January-February Page 4).

The file includes: proposed constitution of Edmonton Consumer's Co-operative Limited; Annual Report (1943); lists of members to who purchased Maple Leaf Petroleum products and amounts of their dividends and share equity (1943-1951); extracts from minutes of UFA Co-op concerning membership shares, etc. (1949-1950); correspondence concerning commissions paid to Edmonton District Farmers' Co-op as an agent of U.F.A. Central Co-op (1944).
Administrative History
An organization called the Edmonton Consumer's Co-operative Ltd. started around 1935, but it is not known whether it became operational. The Edmonton District Farmers' Co-operative Ltd. was founded in 1938. It expanded rapidly and within a few years was dealing in farm supplies, feeds, groceries, general household goods, insurance services, and petroleum products (through a network of agencies in Edmonton and surrounding rural points). It was affiliated with U.F.A. Central Co-op and later with UFA Co-op for purposes of marketing Maple Leaf Petroleum products. It was also affiliated with Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association. Sometime between 1947 and 1951 it was renamed Edmonton Co-operative Association. J.R. Love was its manager.
