A Range of Services

Our group buying program offers big savings on products and services that co-ops use every day.

We provide co-ops with deals on waste management, cabinets and countertops, flooring, maintenance supplies, banking and appliances. Individual households in member co-ops can benefit from our telecom services (HDTV, high-speed internet, home phone and fibre optic upgrades).

Co-ops using CHF BC group buying partners are exempted from CMHC and BC Housing requirements for getting three quotes. We’ve already done the work for you!

We offer province-wide service and delivery through our partner, Trail Appliances. Trail provides high-quality, durable products, including a number of Energy Star options.

Our special CHF BC pricing means members can take advantage of volume savings even when they have a small order.

Co-ops have access to a variety of appliances through our program: fridges; electric and gas ranges; dishwashers, garburators and hood fans.

Banking & Investing

Housing co-ops with money in the Co-op Housing Interest Pool (CHIP) earn higher interest on the balances in their co-op operating accounts.

CHIP turns several small co-op accounts into one large depositor, making each eligible for better interest rates. With more than $70 million on deposit through Vancity, CCEC Credit Union and Coast Capital, CHIP is one of our most popular services.

Waste and Recycling

For over ten years, CHF BC has partnered with Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste), a forward-thinking disposal company that uses low-energy trucks and offers an organic waste program.

As a result of our relationship with Waste Connections, our members save up to 40% on waste and recycling services, which can amount to as much as $6,000 per year for larger co-ops. On Vancouver Island, we’re proud to partner with family-owned Alpine Disposal and Recycling for savings to our members.
