Canada’s 92,000 co-op homes are the product of a unique partnership between community housing groups and governments. CHF Canada recommends that the federal government:
- continue to invest in urban infrastructure and affordable housing by enhancing existing programs and providing new rental housing incentives
- adapt existing supply programs to encourage new co-op housing development across Canada
- provide funding to test and scale innovative development and financing of co-op housing models across the country, and
- ensure that vulnerable Canadians can continue to afford their co-op, non-profit and municipal housing after federal operating agreements end.
