The Co-op Difference: Comparing Co-op and Market Rents in Five Canadian Cities

In this Co-op Conversation, Greg Suttor, Nick Falvo, and Courtney Lockhart will share findings from their recent report that compares housing charges in non-profit co-operatives to similar private sector marketing units in Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, and Ottawa.  Based on their findings that co-op housing units were consistently more affordable than market apartments, and this gap has widened over the period of 2006 – 2021, they will discuss the implications of this finding on the future of the co-operative housing sector.

32nd Annual Women’s Memorial March

The first women’s memorial march was held in 1992 in response to the murder of a woman on Powell Street in Vancouver. Out of this sense of hopelessness and anger came an annual march on Valentine’s Day to express compassion, community, and caring for all women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside on unceded Coast Salish territories.
