Award Details

The Century of Co-operation award recognizes the significant contributions of older adults in housing co-ops to both their communities and co-ops.

The award honours members of CHF BC member housing co-operative whose age plus years of living in housing co-operatives equals 100 years or more.

Here’s the formula: (Member’s age) + (length of time living in co-op housing, current co-op or other co-op) ≥100. For example, a person who is 80 years old and has lived in co-op housing for 20 years qualifies with an even 100 years.

CHF BC traditionally recognizes the members on at annual ceremonies in Vancouver and Victoria each fall.  Awards are sent to members unable to attend a ceremony.  Some co-ops also recognize their Century of Co-operation award recipients at a general meeting or their own event.

We have recognized 374 members for this award since 2011.
