Administrative History
The United Farmers of Alberta (U.F.A.) was founded in 1909 and incorporated by the Province of Alberta in 1918. In 1932 it established a subsidiary, U.F.A. Central Co-operative Association Ltd. (U.F.A. Central Co-op), to provide wholesaling and other services to local and regional farmers' consumer co-ops. In December 1948 U.F.A. changed its name and revised its Bylaws in order to function as a cooperative business, United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd. (UFA Co-op). The advocacy and educational functions of U.F.A. then merged with the Alberta Farmers' Union to form the Farmers' Union of Alberta. UFA Co-op took over most of the functions of its subsidiary UFA Central Co-op, which dissolved in 1966. In 1952 the management of most of the grocery and general merchandising cooperative outlets in the province was transferred to Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association, which later merged with Federated Co-operatives Ltd. UFA Co-op then concentrated its marketing efforts in two areas: petroleum products and farm supplies. Petroleum products were initially supplied by Maple Leaf Petroleum Inc., and distributed through a network of local co-ops and agents. In 1957 the Co-op purchased Maple Leaf, and by the 2000s, the Petroleum Division consisted of a network of about 110 locally-managed Petroleum Agencies primarily serving the agriculture industry and rural communities. The Farm Supply Division entered the retail market in 1954, and expanded through amalgamations with local and regional co-ops. By the 2000s there were about 34 Farm and Ranch Supply Stores offering a wide range of products and services to agricultural producers, including animal health services and construction of farm buildings and mechanization systems. In 2008 and 2009 the Co-op acquired two groups of outdoor sporting goods stores which operate as a non-co-operative business in western Canada and the northwestern United States. Committed to enhancing the agriculture industry and the rural way of life, UFA Co-op sponsors a Community Investment program which provides scholarships agriculture students and grants to youth groups such as 4-H, as well as activities such as stock shows, rodeos, and amateur sports. The Co-op is governed by a Board of Directors, elected from among Delegates, who are in turn elected by the customer/members of local districts of its trading area.
