There's still room for you at our Education Conference this Saturday

Register now and join us on October 28

Here's a sample of workshops you can choose from:

Yikes, I’m the Secretary

The co-op's secretary is not responsible for doing all the secretarial duties, but rather for making sure they get done.  Even if you’re not the secretary, sign up for this workshop that’s full of transferable information and skills, with lots of templates and examples to take back to your co-op!


Maintenance 101

This workshop is great for members who are new to maintenance as well as those with experience. The workshop facilitator, Cheryl Alsop,brings extensive experience and has yet to be stumped by a maintenance question!



Have a problem with hoarding at your co-op or worried that you might? We last offered a workshop on the topic of hoarding in 2013 so don’t assume you’ll be able to attend this workshop at the next CHF BC conference. This might be your last chance for a while!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Excitement is building for our 2017 AGM!

We hope you are planning to join us on November 19 for an exciting annual meeting.

This is no ordinary AGM! Check out these options for adding even more value to your AGM day:

Come early - meet the Minister

Your AGM registration is your ticket to attend the Housing Central Conference opening ceremonies and a morning plenary at 8:30 a.m. where you will meet the Minister of Housing, Hon. Selina Robinson. We'll even throw in breakfast if you want to come before 8:30 a.m. Just let us know after you register by sending an email to before November 10 so we can hold a spot for you.

No ordinary AGM - no ordinary lunch!

As part of our lunch program we'll rejoin the larger Housing Central conference for an hour so you can:

Join us for Dinner

After our meeting you can join other CHF BC members and our partners in the community housing sector for the Sector Supper cohosted by CHF BC and BCNPHA’s presidents. Just select the Sector Supper option when you register for the AGM.

Celebrate CHF BC’s 35th anniversary with a special visit from Domanique Grant, co-op housing leader, singer and performing artist.

Meet our Rooftops Canada international visitors from South Africa.

Hear an update on the resolution that CHF BC sponsored at the CHF Canada AGM this year to invest $1 million in new co-op development across the country.

What?!  All this for that low registration fee?  Absolutely!  This is a special year and we wanted to add extra value to your AGM experience.


Of course you can still enjoy the usual business of the AGM:

Nominate a director or submit a resolution

Elect a new board (see how you can run or nominate someone to run). Deadline for nominations is November 10 at 4:30 p.m.

We're accepting resolutions from members for consideration at the AGM until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 6.

Finally, check out Housing Central

If you want to get the full experience of the conference, and you've registered for our AGM, you can register for the much larger Housing Central Conference on Monday and Tuesday, November 20 and 21, at the deeply discounted rate of $300.

Get more details on our event page.

See you there!
