CHF Canada is the voice of co-operative housing in Canada.
We work with governments and other key decision-makers on behalf of our member co-ops and support the development of more co-op housing.
For more than 50 years, co-ops have provided Canadians with good-quality, affordable housing. Some 250,000 Canadians of all backgrounds, in every province and territory, make their homes in non-profit housing co‑ops.
CHF Canada has a strong record of defending our members and promoting the concept of co‑operative housing.
