Co-op Housing Basics (Vancouver Island)

Do you have new members who would like a clear understanding of what it means to be part of a housing co-op? Or not so new members who would like a reminder and an up-to-date with what is happening in the co-op housing sector?

This workshop is a perfect grounding and covers:

  • Some background - what is the co-op enterprise movement that housing co-ops are a part of?
  • An overview of the diversity of housing co-ops in BC
  • What makes co-ops a unique housing option
  • How do housing co-ops work including the basic legal framework and roles and responsibilities
  • The future of housing co-ops in BC
  • New workshop delivery includes presentation, discussion, group activities and handouts to take back to your co-op.

This guide to co-op living is just what you need to update your co-op's orientation for new members or even prospective members at the top of your wait-list!

Member feedback: "Very well presented and informative". "Very helpful to have other co-op members' input and the facilitator has a wealth of information to share". December, 2017.
