COCHF is one of the 12 regional associations of housing co-ops in English speaking Canada, which include nine regional federations and three regional offices of the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada (CHF Canada).
CHF Canada is the national association of housing co-ops representing co-ops from coast to coast. The regional and national associations share a common purpose, which is to promote the long-term well being of non-profit housing co-ops in Canada and the development of more non-profit co-operative housing.
Co-op housing federations work together to co-ordinate their services and activities. CHF Canada provides services to housing co-ops across Canada, and direct services to co-ops are delivered through their regional federation office. COCHF and CHF Canada have a Sector Membership agreement in place where housing co-ops that are members of COCHF or CHF Canada will also be members of the other organization.

Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC) allows Canadian co-ops to speak with a single voice. CMC is a national, bilingual association that represents more than 18 million co-operative members from 9,000 co-ops.
