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.
