About ARC

CHF BC’s Active Resilient Communities (ARC) program helps co-ops consider and plan for current and future challenges and opportunities. Members come together to develop a vision, identify their core values, engage in focused conversations, and build a comprehensive action plan to realize their goals.

ARC is designed to help co-op communities think about their futures — to discuss more than day-to-day challenges. We encourage members to envision the kind of community they want and then discuss how to achieve that. We bring in subject-matter experts so that co-ops can create action plans grounded in reality.

What Co-op Members Think

“Overall, our experience through the course of ARC brought the voices of our community together and contributed information from experts in the field.”

“I was thrilled with the process. It was thorough, engaging and objective.”

“Thank you for a wonderful session. It gave me personally a lot to think about.”

“Our co-op was on the verge of a big decision: to move forward with redevelopment or renovation. The input we received from invited speakers helped us clarify the consequences to finally vote for renovation.”

“It is always valuable coming together as a community and hearing all member’s priorities.”
