Many Canadians have turned to housing co-ops for a secure, affordable home in a community setting. Over the years, federal and provincial governments have funded various programs to help Canadians create non-profit housing co-ops. The co-ops developed under these programs provide good quality, affordable housing.
Co-op communities are made up of all kinds of people – people with different backgrounds and incomes and special needs. They elect, from among themselves, a board of directors to manage the business of the co-op. It doesn’t matter who you are.
How much does it cost?
Some members pay the full housing charge; others with lower incomes pay less. Non-Profit housing co-ops receive money from the government to help the co-op subsidize a certain number of housing units. Housing co-ops operate as close to cost as possible. The full monthly housing charge rises only as the co-op’s costs increase.
