Staff Profile: Melissa Estable, Manager, Co-op Housing Development
On April 16, 2018, Melissa Estable joined CHF Canada as Manager, Co-op Housing Development.
In this role, Melissa will explore opportunities for the creation of new co-op housing across the country, including co-op expansions, redevelopment and new options for the growth of the co-op housing sector. She looks forward to helping co-ops learn from examples like the Community Land Trust in Vancouver, as well as best practices from the private sector.
As she puts it, “Wouldn’t it be great if more Canadians could enjoy the benefits of co-operative living?”
