Congratulations to Cawthra Mansions Co-op for receiving the 2021 Rooftops Canada International Service Award! Their support of co-ops overseas is a great example of co-operation among co-operatives.We are very pleased to congratulate Cawthra Mansions Co-operative in Toronto, Ontario, the 2021 Rooftops Canada International Service Award which was recently presented at the CHF Canada AGM. The award recognizes the important contribution of the housing co-op movement in Canada to international development by thanking CHF Canada members that have actively and consistently supported our work. Cawthra Mansions, a 78 unit co-op, was formed following the acquisition and renovation of three linked buildings in 1986. It has embodied the 6th co-op principle, co-operation among co-ops, and extended this principle internationally since 1990 by generously contributing to co-op and social housing in Africa through Rooftops Canada. Congratulations Cawthra Mansions and thank you for all that you do to support co-ops internationally. (pic – Anna Jacobs, Co-op President with the award.) ... See MoreSee Less
