CHF BC’s Vancouver Island Council meets three times a year and offers a space for staff and Vancouver Island directors and members to meet and exchange news and information.
Shivani from our Active Resilient Communities (ARC) team joined a recent Council meeting. She shared information on our new program and how it can benefit housing co-op members. The program is soft launching this spring.
ARC’s goal is to helping housing co-ops develop clear visions for the future and explore what will be needed to make these visions a reality. We know that co-ops across Vancouver Island and the province are resilient and ready to handle the challenging conversations that can come up when thinking about change.
The ARC program was launched as a pilot about a year ago and completed its testing phase in February 2023. The program is geared up to launch as a standalone service and the great news is that we have already started accepting applications from housing co-ops across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island!
