* Please BYOP * You are looking for a small bison tube.

Saskatchewan people have created a number of the most powerful cooperatives in the world and the Fransaskois can boast that they contributed a great deal to the genesis and the prosperity of Credit Unions.

The Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan (CÉCS), formerly the Conseil coopératif de la Saskatchewan,  is at the core of this movement.

The first rural credit union in the province was created in Laflèche in 1938. Subsequently, several credit unions were created, using Laflèche as a model.

In 1946, several cooperators met to create their own cooperative organization. The CÉCS was created in 1947 and since then, it has been the organization representing Francophone economic development in Saskatchewan.

Les Saskatchewanais ont créé plusieurs sociétés coopératives parmi les plus puissantes dans le monde, et les Fransaskois peuvent se vanter d’avoir grandement participé à la naissance et à la prospérité des Credit Unions.

Au centre de ce mouvement, on trouve le Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan (CÉCS), anciennement le Conseil de la Coopération de la Saskatchewan.

C’est en 1938 que la première caisse populaire en milieu rural de la province est créée à Laflèche. Par la suite, plusieurs caisses sont fondées sur le modèle de celle de Laflèche.

En 1946, plusieurs coopérateurs se réunissent pour créer leur propre institution de coopération. Le CÉCS verra le jour en 1947 et depuis ce temps, il est l’organisme porte-parole du développement économique francophone de la Saskatchewan.
