Join Sector Organizations

Sector groups provide information and advice and advocate for housing co-ops. Housing co-ops (and their members) may benefit from group buying and insurance programs.

  1. Join CHF BC. You’ll be able to access the federation’s education programs, co-op services and group buying savings.
  2. CHF BC offers lawyer-approved and Act-compliant Model Rules. You may want to revisit your own co-op’s rules so they align with the Model Rules.
  3. Join CHF Canada for advocacy support and access to insurance services.

Co-operation among co-ops is one of the core co-op principles. CHF BC and CHF Canada are both incorporated as co-ops and exist to serve their members. In BC, the support and educational opportunities they offer are complemented through partnerships in Housing Central. Encasa is a sector-owned investment company.
