Since its founding in 1909, UFA has grown from a small, local co-operative to one of the largest in Canada. But we haven’t forgotten our roots. We were founded on the principle that we can achieve far more together than as individuals, we know that great things happen when we share a single vision and roll up our sleeves to get the job done.
Our agricultural roots and co-operative spirit also mean people and family are equally important at UFA. We know there’s more to our employees than their jobs. We pride ourselves on hard work, we recognize the value of a challenging career and opportunities for growth, and we know what you do on your own time is just as important as what you do on ours. UFA is more than just a place to work – it’s a place to make a life.
Our Core Purpose
As an agricultural co-operative, our core purpose is simple: to improve the economic and social well-being of our agricultural owners and their communities. We do this by enabling our members’ businesses, protecting and growing their investments in the co-operative, and promoting and investing in rural communities. It’s why UFA exists, and inspires everything we do.
