From Classroom to Community

From fostering education initiatives to celebrating our rich history and supporting the next generation, 2023 has been a year of growth, collaboration, and significant achievements. We are proud of out efforts in build a strong place for community.

Throughout 2023, CHF BC balanced foundational education and governance activities while embracing a culture of shared experiences. We honoured co-op pioneers through the Century of Cooperation awards, while our Aging in Place Committee focused on senior well-being at public events. We also nurtured the next generation, $12,000 in scholarships was awarded to support the education of future co-operators.

Our advocacy efforts through Housing Central with our partners at BC Non-Profit Housing Association and the Aboriginal Housing Management Association resulted in a historic $500M investment by the Province of BC for the Rental Protection Fund, safeguarding co-op homes.
