“What role does CHF BC play?”

CHF BC provides advice and services.

We are not government, and we aren’t paid by government. We do not control what co-ops do, but we advocate for them when they need our help.

CHF BC is membership association — a non-profit co-operative just like most of our members.

Our members are housing co-operatives (organizations) rather than individual people living in co-op housing. Instead of providing housing directly, we provide services to housing co-ops: we offer commercial services (savings and better service through bulk buying); education; long-term planning; and advocacy support.

Our members associate with CHF BC because they want to, and because they find value in what we offer.
