“No one is an island, no island is resilient alone. Together we can make a comeback.”


The Cortes Natural Food Co-op has joined the Island Comeback initiative, calling on islanders and friends from our global communities to support British Columbia’s rural island farms, businesses, artisans, and services impacted by COVID-19. By purchasing an Island COMEBACK Gift Certificate, or by making a donation, you become a resilient regenerator, helping our rural islands to survive during these difficult times.

Purchase a gift certificate for the Co-op, and use it dollar for dollar in the store or cafe when you come for a visit.

Island COMEBACK Gift Certificates have no cash value and are non-refundable. We cannot predict if a business may need to close due to COVID-19 in the future. Purchasers, be mindful of this during time of purchase.

Island COMEBACK is sponsored by the Rural Islands Economic Partnership (RIEP), a grassroots initiative organized as a means for cultivating enduring rural island-wide economic partnerships, in collaboration with Indigenous communities, that ensures economic resilience, and generates long-term prosperity without depleting natural or social resources.
