CHF Canada exists to inspire, represent and serve our members in a united Canadian co‑operative housing movement. With over 900 members in every province and territory, CHF Canada is a leading-edge membership association committed to the sustainable development of co-operative housing in Canada. Together, housing co-ops are home to over a quarter of a million Canadians, representing a $6 billion real estate portfolio.

Since 2014, CHF Canada has offered a range of asset management services to help member housing co-operatives understand and address the present and future capital requirements of their buildings. Organized as social enterprises, this work promotes long-term sustainability, and is intended to preserve the quality and affordability of co-operative housing in Canada.
