Short version of changes to co-op Rules - July 26, 2013

Short version of changes to co-op rules now available online

During our consultation on Model Rules 2.0, some co-ops told us that they would prefer to tackle the job of updating their Rules and Occupancy Agreement in two stages:

  1. The minimum changes required by recent amendments to the Co-op Act, followed by
     
  2. A more complete revision based on the new Model Rules 2.0.
CHF BC has produced a template for co-ops wanting to make the minimum changes described above. You can find it here on the members-only section of our website.
 

The package includes an explanation of the required changes, the text of the special resolution your co-op will need to adopt, and a sample notice of meeting to get you started. The Act requires co-ops to make these changes at their next members meeting, so don't delay!
