COVID-19 and Nova Scotia housing co-ops

Published March 30, 2020

Updated March 1, 2022

Nova Scotia recently announced they are easing restrictions between now and March 21, 2022, at which time all restrictions will be lifted. The reopening plan takes a phased approach based on ongoing epidemiology and hospitalizations.  If required, this phase may be paused; co-ops should continue to monitor current restrictions.

Co-operatives need to ensure that the governmental legislation, that limits rent increases to two per cent per year until Dec. 31, 2023, is followed.

There will continue to be cases of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia, and you should maintain steps to help protect yourself and your community.  Get vaccinated, stay at home if you feel sick, self-isolate when required; and maintain everyday healthy habits. These steps will also help protect you and others from other respiratory illnesses like the flu and colds.

Co-ops can continue to check out our main Housing Co-ops and COVID-19 page which contains more updates with a comprehensive set of FAQs, and CHF Canada co-op staff are here to help you with your questions about co-op operations.
