Merrilee Robson

When Merrilee Robson was still a university student, she was lucky enough to have the chance to form a non-profit housing co-operative with her neighbours.

A few years later, frustrated by the lack of local education and services for housing co-ops, she worked with members of other co-ops to form a new federation in BC. Merrilee was a founding director of CHF BC and served two years as president.

On the national level, she was active on the CHF Canada Education Committee and was the first chair of a new Federations committee. Merrilee spent 12 years working in Communications and Government Relations for CHF Canada, including work on the successful campaign to form the Agency for Co-operative Housing.

Her first mystery novel, Murder is Uncooperativeis set in a Vancouver housing co-op and her short mystery fiction has appeared in magazines and anthologies throughout Canada, the United States and Great Britain.

Merrilee will be part of the 40 Years of Navigating Challenges Together – So Far, So Good… panel at the 2022 Spring Education Conference.
