Why a Diversity Scholarship?
CHF Canada recognizes that the strength of its membership is in the many cultures and identities represented within Canada’s housing co‑ops. CHF Canada has joined with regional federations across the country to recognize and support young people living in housing co-ops who are actively promoting diversity in their community. The goal of the Diversity Scholarship program is to financially support emerging leaders of the co‑op housing movement in their pursuit of post-secondary education.
