For members of the Pioneer Co-op, there is some good news for you coming in the mail in the form of equity cheques. 

Starting today, mailouts will begin in Swift Current. The repayment approved by the board of directors will distribute over 12 million dollars to over 17,000 members of the communities under their association.

For the last few years, cheques have been mailed out, as Larry Kozun details.

"We use to have dividend days where we would go to each location and hand out our cheques," remembered Kozun. "With Covid, we stopped doing that and mailed and we had a good discussion with our board of directors and they just felt that for this year yet that we would continue to mail it."

While cheques are being mailed out today, it will take a few days for them to arrive.
