Members learn about new Island flooring program at Vancouver Island Council meeting

  24 February 2020

The Vancouver Island Council meeting at the Hotel Grand Pacific on February 18 saw a packed room of members.

Delegates received a report from the board from CHF BC Island director Jared Melvin.

CHF BC was pleased to announce that Island Floor Centre Ltd. is our newest group buying program partner and provides quality flooring and installation to Island housing co-ops. Members were enthusiastic to hear about the benefits of the new flooring program. For more information or to enroll in the program Island members should email

Joanne Mick, Manager Operations of The Agency for Co-operatives, gave members an update on the FCHI-2 CMHC subsidy.

We encourage Island members to attend the upcoming Education Conference on April 4 at the Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport in Richmond. Members travelling to the conference from outside the Lower Mainland can take advantage of the free shuttle provided between the Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport and Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal.

Members were invited to a Island Co-op Connect story telling event planned for March 10.

Mark your calendars – the popular Island Member Appreciation event will be taking place on September 16 this year.
