Award for Co-operative Achievement

Award for Co-operative Achievement

Why an Award for Co-operative Achievement?

Housing co-ops are full of amazing stories, and we want to highlight them.

The Award for Co‑operative Achievement celebrates an inspiring program or project by a CHF Canada member co‑op that creates a lasting legacy. The Award is given out every two years and showcases why housing co‑ops are remarkable places to live.

If your housing co-op has a success story to share, consider submitting a nomination for some national recognition!


To be honoured with the Award for Co‑operative Achievement, a co‑op must be a CHF Canada member, and fulfill one or more of the following criteria:

  • Dedication to social change, community development and/or environmental sustainability
  • Outstanding achievement in co-operative governance and/or management
  • Significant engagement of young co-operative members or those members from underrepresented groups (diversity), or support of aging-in-place measures
  • Have added new units or redeveloped to contribute to the growth of Canada’s co-op housing movement

Past recipients have been recognized for projects that have supported a diverse membership, built community, or supported environmental sustainability.


The winner will be honored at CHF Canada’s Annual Meeting and receive $2,500.
