Eugene Bachelu can certainly be considered one of the greatest cooperators of his time in Saskatchewan.

Born in 1891 in Dammartin, France, Eugène arrived in Montmartre, Saskatchewan in 1905. Four years later, he decided to settle in Laflèche, where he became a farmer.

As early as the 1920s, he was very interested in the cooperative movement in Saskatchewan. In 1928 he left his farm to start the Laflèche Co-operative, a local association of cooperators.

In 1937, new legislation provided for the incorporation of the credit unions. With two other cooperators, he founded the first credit union in rural Saskatchewan, in Laflèche. When the Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan was established in 1947, Eugène Bachelu became its first president.

Eugène Bachelu peut très certainement être considéré comme l’un des plus grands coopérateurs de son temps en Saskatchewan.

Né en 1891 à Dammartin en France, Eugène est arrivé en Saskatchewan en 1905 à Montmartre. Il décide, quatre ans plus tard, de s’établir à Laflèche et devient fermier.

Déjà dans les années 1920, il s’intéresse beaucoup au mouvement coopératif en Saskatchewan. En 1928 il quitte sa ferme pour lancer Laflèche co-operative, une association locale de coopérateurs.

En 1937, une nouvelle loi permet l’incorporation des caisses populaires. Avec deux autres coopérateurs, il va fonder la première caisse populaire en milieu rural à Laflèche. Après la création du Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan en 1947, Eugène Bachelu en sera le premier président.
