At our 2022 Spring Education Conference, we held two plenary sessions looking at the past and future of the co-op housing sector in BC. Both sessions were well received and we have been urged to share the videos more widely, so here you go!
Leaky co-ops, expiring operating agreements and leasehold frameworks, to name a few, may be in our rear view mirror but they significantly impacted how we govern and manage ourselves as we face today’s global challenges of climate emergency and systemic inequities.
In this conversation, the panel explores our past, present, and future with some notable individuals who have lead and are leading CHF BC’s work in uniting, representing and serving BC’s housing co-ops.
Panelists: Thom Armstrong (CHF BC), Cassia Kantrow (Trout Lake Housing Co-op), Merrilee Robson
Moderator: Michelle Cooper Iversen (CHF BC)
We want a sustainable future for all of BC’s housing co-ops and our strong united voice can deliver housing security and social justice. How is CHF BC going to support its members tackle global challenges such as climate change, inequality, justice, and policy in support of more co-op housing?
This session explores how CHF BC will be supporting its members to tackle global challenges such as climate change, inequality, justice, and policy in support of more co-op housing!
Panelists: Kathryn Sheps (Yew Street Housing Co-operative), Yuri Artibise (CHF BC), Tiffany Duzita (Community Land Trust)
Moderator: Garfield Hunter (CHF BC)
To give you a feel of what the rest of the education conference was like, we created an 80 second video featuring highlights from the event.
