Planning for our Future: Change is Coming! – April 28, 2018

Refinancing: What is Your Lender Thinking? – April 28, 2018

Webinar Recording Refinancing Program (50 minutes)

On November 7, 2017, CHF Canada held a webinar on the Refinancing Program that was created for co-ops across Canada (outside BC and Quebec). Refinancing can help your co-op repair and renovate while also planning for a sound future. For Section 95 co-ops who’ve burned their mortgage or soon will be – this webinar is a good place to start planning!  Share with your Board.

Reimagine your co-op

Every housing co‑op begins with a dream.

First, it’s the dream of getting your co‑op off the ground, of creating an affordable, attractive and democratic community where people come first.

As your co‑op develops and matures, the dream turns to making your co-op even better.That means eventual repairs, renovations and improvements. But those things cost money.

Imagine your co-op with new:

  • kitchens
  • windows
  • siding
  • paving
  • roofing and more.

CHF Canada’s Refinancing Program help co-ops renew and reimagine their buildings.

With the Refinancing Program, your co-op can:

  • pay off an existing loan
  • obtain new credit union financing, and
  • finance needed renovations and repairs.

Many co‑ops have already taken advantage of this program. We can help you determine whether it will work for you. We provide expertise and assistance in identifying your co‑op’s borrowing needs. Then we work with a credit union to secure the right financing.

For more information, contact our Refinancing Program Manager, Dave Howard, at 1-800-268-2537 ext. 239 or dhoward@chfcanada.coop.

CHF Canada and Newmarket Co-op have always had a great relationship and we are forever grateful to them for that and for all their support in our refinancing journey and whatever may lay ahead. - Mandy Lord, board member, Newmarket Housing Co-op, Newmarket, ON
