A housing co-operative is a non-profit corporation governed by the Co-operative Corporations Act. The corporation owns the housing complex and the residents or “members” of the co-op collectively “own” the corporation. Members pay housing charges which are based on the co-op’s operation costs. They also contribute their time to the management and day to day operation of the co-op. By participating in this way, a sense of community is developed and members control their housing environment. Each adult member has a vote in all matters of concern to the co-op, including the setting of the housing charges. Because the housing is collectively owned and never resold, members have the security of knowing that they can live in the Co-op as long as they fulfill their obligations as members.
