Our 2019 to 2022 corporate strategy

Our four-year strategy was designed as a bridge to the future

2022 marked the end point of a four-year strategy developed in anticipation of the changes that will impact our organization and our stakeholders. Putting the needs of our members, clients, workforce and communities at the forefront, the successful execution of our strategy has strengthened our organization, and positioned our co-operative for a more sustainable, resilient future.

Land acknowledgement

The corporate headquarters of The Co-operators Group Limited is in Guelph, Ontario, on the Between the Lakes Treaty (No. 3) territory, the traditional land of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the ancestral homelands of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Attawandaron peoples.

Our organization was founded in 1945 in Regina, Saskatchewan, on Treaty 4 territory, the traditional land of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis peoples.

Today, our co-operative exists in communities from coast to coast to coast. We recognize that the many places where we live and work are home to past, present, and future First Nation, Metis, and Inuit peoples, who have cared for this land since time immemorial.

We acknowledge this rich history as part of our journey, support for, and ongoing commitment to Truth and Reconciliation in Canada.

We’ve developed a land acknowledgement guideline that provides resources and guidance for our workforce to learn more about land acknowledgments, understand how to deliver them respectfully and appropriately, and to foster their own Truth and Reconciliation journey.

More information on our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation and progress made in 2022 can be found on pages 75 and 76 of this report.
