John Bathurst

John Bathurst is a dyed in the wool co-oper’, which may have started as he watched his mother-in-law, Shirley Schmid‘s, passion for building thousands of co-op units in the early 1980’s.

John and his family have been members of Misty Ridge Housing Co-operative  since its inception in 1987. He and his wife and  raised their family there, and played an ongoing role in the stewardship of the community.  In 2020 he became a director of CHF BC. To say he is passionate about co-op housing is an understatement!

He is a retired businessperson with a background in construction, restaurant ownership and sales.   John has also served on many other boards including, ski patrol, Burnaby Winter Club, Barnet Sailing co-op, as well as Parks and Rec Commission and City Council in Port Alberni.

John will be part of the Beyond the Balance Sheet panel at the 2022 Spring Education Conference.
