Short version of changes to co-op Rules now available

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!
