To live in a co-op, you must first become a member. A person interested in applying for membership submits a completed application form. Applications are only given out at orientation sessions. At the moment, we are only accepting applications for 3, 4, and 5 bedroom suites. Please see the information above for details.
If the co-op already has your application on file, you must write to the co-op every 6 months confirming that you wish to remain on our waiting list, otherwise we will assume that you’ve withdrawn your application. You may also use this opportunity to update your application information.
To be eligible to live at our co-op, your gross monthly income must not exceed 5 times the amount of the market housing charge for the unit size. Market housing charges are listed above.
Co-op housing isn’t for everyone. The success of a co-op is dependent on its members actively participating in the day to day running of the co-op. Chances are, if you’ve volunteered before and enjoyed it, and think living in a co-operative environment sounds good, you’d like living in co-operative housing. However, if you’re not looking for a home with a sense of community, if you are not interested in participating to help make the co-op a success—if you’re just looking for a place to live, then co-operative housing is not for you. Housing co-ops aren’t for everyone, but for many, they’re the only way to live.
