Knives & Forks Community Investment Coop Membership Form
The Knives & Forks Community Investment Co-op stimulates local economies by providing a vehicle for British Columbians to invest in local enterprises participating in the sustainable food economy.

Knives & Forks is structured as a share issuing cooperative that sells shares to the public and uses the capital raised to re-invest in eligible local business. Our members can invest RRSP-eligible funds into the co-op, which can then be used to make loans to food-related businesses in BC.

The co-op is managed and run according to cooperative principles. Like a credit union, the community investment co-op is owned by its member investors, is directed by its members, and is accountable to the people who make the co-op successful. It is grounded in its community and has community investment as the spirit behind what it does.

We look forward to having you as a member!
