Administrative History
The official newspaper of the United Farmers of Alberta, The U.F.A., began publication in March 1922. W. Norman Smith was its editor. Initially publication was supervised by a committee of the United Farmers of Alberta, but in 1928 "The U.F.A." Limited was incorporated under the Companies Act of Alberta to allow the newspaper to operate with legal independence. The U.F.A. was renamed The United Farmer in 1934 and ceased publication in 1936. A subsequent publication of the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Association, 1962-1985, was also titled The United Farmer. The officers of the United Farmers of Alberta generally were concurrently officers of The U.F.A. Limited. The company apparently wound up its affairs in 1949.

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.
