Excitement builds for hockey’s new home

Co-op is an integral part our city.

Saskatoon Co-op has more than 1,200 employees and serves over 107,000 members and their families at Co-op Food Stores, Home Centres, Convenience Stores/Gas Bars, Agro Centre and Liquor Store. As the largest company in the province, Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) supplies and supports retail co-operatives — like Saskatoon Co-op — across Western Canada, employing 1,000 people in the city.

Saskatoon Co-op and FCL are proud to make a $250,000 donation to the Home Ice Campaign.

Together, Saskatoon Co-op and FCL are building a strong, vibrant community. They’re proud to give back and invest in local initiatives. Their gift will help the University of Saskatchewan build a new twin-pad ice facility to assist countless athletes for generations to come.

Thanks to their support, Merlis Belsher Place will soon be a reality and will give Huskie athletes and minor league hockey players the opportunity to sharpen their skills in the cutting-edge arena that they deserve.
