Funding Your Energy Retrofit WEBINAR – FREE

This free WEBINAR will cover new funding for social housing retrofits including eligibility details and benefits of each funding stream.

Participants will learn about the Social Housing Retrofit Support Program (SHRSP) offered through BC Hydro and Fortis BC and the Social Housing Incentive Program (SHIP) through the BC Ministry of Energy and Mines.

After years of lobbying we’re really excited new funding is available and we hope housing co-ops and non-profit groups will take advantage of the new opportunities to save energy and money. You will also learn about FREE energy audits (Level 1 ASHRAE walk through audit) available from the BC Non Profit Housing Association, our partners in Housing Central!

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

You can download and print a poster of this workshop for your co-op notice board here.

Yikes I’m the Treasurer

This workshop is for co-op treasurers, signing officers and other directors who want to learn about their financial responsibilities. Luckily, you don’t need to be a financial expert to be a co-op treasurer but you do need to know:

  • About signing cheques
  • How to confirm a bank reconciliation
  • What questions to ask about financial statements and auditors’ reports

Join us to discuss these topics, compare experiences with members from other co-ops as you learn how to be the best co-op treasurer you can be.
