Our mission: Affordable homes in an inclusive, co-operative community.

Our values: Democracy, diversity, responsibility, co-operation, and peacefulness.

We are committed to the values of the Canadian Co-op Movement.

This community is run by the efforts of the people who live here, along with a part-time maintenance co-ordinator and management company.

Each member is expected to get actively involved. On average, members volunteer four hours per month – in a combination of meetings, follow-up tasks, and outdoor work parties.

Our members contribute their time and skills by participatDSC_0055 (2)ing actively in one (or more than one) of our community Committees: Finance, Maintenance, Membership, Social/Children’s, Safety and Security, Landscaping, and Member Relations. Also members participate at General Members (GM) Meetings which take place two to four times per year; everyone is expected to attend GMs.
