Heat domes, forest fires, floods, and drought – our changing climate impacts us and the environment. We need to find ways to make co-ops resilient in the face of climate change. Housing co-ops can play a part.

Our Task Force

The Climate Emergency Task Force (CETF) was set up in response to a resolution adopted by members at CHF BC’s 2019 Annual General Meeting.

Our committee features a mix of CHF BC board directors, people from CHF BC member organizations, and CHF BC staff.

Our mandate is to

  • Assist the CHF BC board in reporting to members annually on how CHF BC’s tools, resources, and programs help member housing co-op become more environmentally sustainable and resilient
  • Support CHF BC’s efforts to assist housing co-ops in discussions with their members on how they can take tangible steps to reduce their co-op’s impact on the environment
