Jarrett Hagglund

Jarrett feels fortunate to have lived in and been an active member of Emma G. Housing Coop for the past 9 years.  

He currently lives with his husband Zach and an amazing community of neighbours they wouldn’t want to be without. Since joining the co-op Jarrett has held the positions of; Secretary, Treasurer and President.

Professionally Jarrett has spent the last 10 years working in progressive politics, in campaign, community outreach and event planning roles.

The last 2 years on the CHF BC board have given Jarrett deeper understanding of the Community Land Trust, COHO management, as well as the needs and concerns of our members.

Highlights of Jarrett’s recent board term were working on the governance committee and the board executive.  Helping to draft and pass an emergency resolution to support the call to declare that we are in a climate emergency at the CHF Canada AGM.  He was very proud to see our membership create a Climate Emergency Task Force that membership approved last CHF BC AGM.

Jarrett hopes to continue to his work on the CHF BC board and believes the lessons of the first 2 years will make his contributions even more valuable. He is passionate about continuing CHF BC’s work of growing, supporting and advocating on behalf of the co-op and community housing sector.
