Housing Co-operatives (Co-ops)

This section is for people who live in a not-for-profit housing co-operative (“co-op”).  Co-ops are run by members of the co-op and have an elected Board of Directors made up of co-op members.  Co-op members pay a monthly housing charge (rent) and some households pay a geared-to-income housing charge.  Co-op members usually participate in activities related to the running of the co-op.

The Co-operative Housing Federation website has information about co-ops:  www.chfcanada.coop/eng/pages2007/about_1.asp.
