About North Arm Housing Co-operative

North Arm Housing Co-operative is the newest addition to the Community Land Trust (CLT) portfolio. It brings fifty-eight new homes to East Vancouver. Aimed at a diverse 55+community, the co-op features studio and one-bedroom apartments for members within the seven-story building. The co-op recently welcomed its first member and is now accepting applications for membership.

Located on the corner of Fraser Street and East 19th Avenue, North Arm is on the shared and unceded territory of the šxʷməθkʷəy̓əmaɁɬ təməxʷ (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh-ulh Temíx̱w (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. The co-op’s name is inspired by its location on Fraser Street, one of Vancouver’s oldest streets. Historically known as North Arm Road, the name is a connection to the original Indigenous foot trails now known as Kingsway and Southeast Marine Drive.
