Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

I live in Trafalgar Housing Coop (5th & Trafalgar) and interested in connecting with others who live in housing coops - especially in the Kitsilano area.  At least 4 of us are attending the Coop Housing Federation of BC educational workshop on March 27 and would be pleased to share the information afterwards.

Hi there,

My name is Afsaneh, and I'm new to the network. Just found your discussion thread.

I would very much like to hear about the workshop.

Hi, Well I took workshops on Policies that Work and Governance Test (a 3-page list of items that co-ops should do). Another member took Leadership Renewal and several took a full day workshop on Dealing with Conflict. All of the facilitators were excellent - and all the content focused directly to people who live in housing co-ops: most of the 150 or so who came are on their board of directors or very actively involved in a committee.
Do you live in a housing co-op?
Hi there Mary,

Presently live in a rented suite. I would like to move into a housing co-op. I don't know much about it and not really sure how to get started. I visited a website for a housing co-op close to commercial drive but there was very little information posted.

thanks for your reply.
search for CHF BC (the Cooperative Housing Federation of BC - You'll get a lot of info and can probably sign up for their e-newsletter there too.

Hi Mary,

Came across you here! Am going to do the permacuture day this Saturday. I did quite a bit of it years ago. Lovely meeting you and seeing your beautiful art work.

Cheers, Lydia
