Member Forum - Your piece of the puzzle!

Come together with other housing co-op members at our first Member Forum of 2014. You'll take part in a special "Your piece of the puzzle" event. It’s a fun, inspiring way to bring CHF BC members closer together and to connect you to our province-wide campaign for a Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) program to assist co-op communities facing the end of the federal operating agreements.

The clock is ticking for low-income co-op members (i.e., seniors, disabled, single-parent) who rely on rent subsidies to stay in their homes. Between now and 2017, one quarter of B.C.’s housing co-ops will lose rent-geared-to-income subsidies as their federal housing agreements end. That number will climb to 3,000 households by 2020.

The BC government has federal money to fund the RGI program needed to keep these members in place. CHF BC is proposing a program that’s a cost-effective way to keep these members in their homes. We believe the mechanism to resolve the problem exists, has worked well for over 25 years and has predictable costs.

Join us to learn more about our campaign, catch up with the latest from CHF BC and CHF Canada, and add your piece to the puzzle!
