This premier professional development opportunity brings together managers, coordinators and staff of housing co-operatives across Canada. Through engaging plenaries, networking and cutting-edge training, co-op managers will gain and share key insights, knowledge and skills to successfully manage co-ops and build the co-op vision of Co-op Housing for All.
