Wayfinders Business Co-operative ("The Co-op")


I am submitting this application to become a member of the Wayfinders Business Co-operative. This application includes my request to acquire one membership share, which comes at a total cost of $100.00. I am aware that membership approval is contingent upon the Board’s decision regarding this application.

Upon my acceptance as a member, I understand that I will have access to Wayfinders’ basic services and that I am eligible to vote at general membership meetings, including voting for board members. I also commit to abiding by the Co-operative’s by-laws and policies, subject to any amendments made from time to time. I acknowledge and consent to the Co-operative’s right to assert a lien on any equity I hold within the Co-operative, encompassing my share and any funds stemming from any debts I owe to the Co-operative.

Should my application be approved, I understand that I will be required to pay a total of $150.00 CDN, which covers the first-year user fee of $50.00. If applying as a business entity you can add staff, volunteers, or board members to utilize our services for an additional $50.00 annual user fee each.
