Help Shape the Future of Health in your Community

NorWest Co-op Community Health is the only health co-op in Manitoba. Our members are truly on the road to community well-being. Member involvement helps us invest in our community and gives you a voice in shaping the delivery of our programs and services.

We run a co-operative care model – and that means you have the chance to take control of your own health and wellness by buying into and speaking out on our system. Your investment helps us invest in the community and allows you to have a say in how NorWest Co-op provides care to our constituents.

Our members also have a say in our operations and in turn have a direct impact on our community.

The way it works:

  • NorWest membership is available to everyone!
  • We encourage anyone over the age of 18 who lives or works in the Inkster community, as well as anyone over 18 who requires access to special services such as domestic violence programming or immigrant and refugee support to become members.
  • We also encourage those who do not fall into these categories but can bring specialized skills to our governance model and are interested in being a board member to join us.

Co-op Membership FAQ:

How much does it cost to become a member of the co-op?

Cost of membership is a $10.00 investment, and membership NEVER expires! NorWest Co-op members are essentially NorWest owners – and that allows our community to take ownership of both its collective and individual health and wellness.

Why become a member?

As a co-op, we are always looking to our members to identify the needs of their community, and doing our best to provide these services and supports. Our members are the first to learn of news and updates from NorWest Co-op, including any new programs and community events. Most important, co-op members are invited to vote at our Annual General Meeting. We value our membership’s diversity, backgrounds, and insights – and we put these assets to work in shaping the way we provide health care and services.

Who can become a member?

We invite anyone over the age of 18 who live or work in Inkster or the surrounding area, to become members.
