Annual Meetings

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CHF Canada’s Board and Council have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the in-person 2020 Annual Meeting planned for Halifax.

A virtual AGM will take place June 13, 2020, starting at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time (doors open at 1:00 pm ET) with both Ontario and national business meetings as web-based meetings with shortened agendas.

We have made arrangements to return to Halifax in 2022.


CHF Canada’s Annual Meeting is held in a different Canadian city in the spring of each year.

Each AGM features:

  • workshops and training and for co‑op members and managers
  • a national business meeting with reports, resolutions, discussions and elections of the Board of Directors and Finance and Audit Committee.
  • a meeting of CHF Canada’s Ontario Region, including reports, resolutions and election of the Ontario Council
  • regional caucuses for members from BC, the Prairies, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces
  • social events and networking opportunities
  • a special networking session for emerging co‑op leaders (under 35), and
  • simultaneous translation or a French-language alternative for all activities.

All CHF Canada members are encouraged to send at least one delegate to the AGM.

To help with the cost, CHF Canada offers a discounted delegate registration fee, help with delegate airfare costs and a wide range of registration options for other participants. Participants under 35 receive a 50% discount on registration fees.

Future AGM Locations:

  • 2021: Ottawa, ON (June 10 – 12)
  • 2022: Halifax, NS (date to be determined)
CHF Canada has helped my co-op in so many ways. As my co-op’s delegate, I attended the AGM in PEI two years ago and it was inspiring, to say the least. I enjoyed the workshops and meeting people from across the country. Attending workshops on leadership and accountability as a board member ensures decisions are made with all members considered and provides a solid base on which to base effective policies. - First Avenue Athletes Village Housing Co-operative, Vancouver, BC
