News flash - Now a meeting for Tri-Cities' co-ops! - June 6, 2014

This just in: a Tri-Cities community meeting

Save the 300!


We’re not talking Spartans, here -- we’re talking over 300 co-op households in the Tri-Cities area that face the end of rent support that make their homes affordable. You Hold the Key to keeping these most vulnerable British Columbians in their homes!  Let’s pack the common room in Falconcrest Co-op and send a strong, clear message to Housing Minister Rich Coleman that he has to put a provincial rent supplement program in place to help your friends and neighbours stay in their homes after the end of co-ops' federal operating agreements. 

Join the You Hold the Key Campaign team for this co-op community meeting on Thursday, June 19 at Falcon Crest Estates Co-op.  All co-op members welcome.

And there will be key-shaped cookies...

You hold the key!

On Wednesday, June 4, hundreds of co-op members rallied holding cardboard keys that sent the message to the government to fix the co-op housing crunch and take action on disappearing subsidies for co-op members. CHF BC members were joined by co-op members from across the country in Ottawa to attend the CHF Canada AGM
