CHFT Celebrates its 45th Anniversary!

2019 marks CHFT’s 45th anniversary! For 45 years CHFT has promoted the development of new housing co-ops and provided services to existing co-ops.

We have seen our membership grow from less than 10 co-ops to over 180! We recently expanded into Durham Region. We have seen many changes in the past 45 years but CHFT’s commitment to its members has remained constant.

Below are photos from CHFT members' meetings over the years.



 
February is Black History Month

Please let us know if your co-op is planning any events to mark Black History Month.

We can advertise them on our website. Please contact Angela Calderone, angela@coophousing.com to let us know.

Please Let CHFT Know if Your Co-op Has a New Delegate

Delegates play a key role in CHFT’s outreach and organizing. Please let us know if your co-op has a new CHFT delegate or if the contact information for your delegate has changed. We want to keep in touch.

Delegates
  • keep co-ops informed
  • tell CHFT what co-ops want, and
  • get involved in co-op sector issues.
Please contact Angela Calderone, angela@coophousing.com or 416-465-8688 extension 206 to update your delegate’s contact information.

Co-op Cost Cutters: A Co-op Cost Cutters challenge!

At the start of every year, I invite member co-ops to try one or two new Cost Cutters services. The reason for this is that I know how much goes into choosing the companies and negotiating the deals. I research, negotiate and monitor the services, so they are safe for you to use. I believe the program!

By using the program, your co-op can save time and money. Towards this goal, I want to encourage you to try some new services that you haven’t used before.

This year, I want to take it one step further. To encourage you to take the plunge, when you try a couple of new services and let me know what you think of them, I will enter your co-op into two draws of $100 each, money that you can put towards a Members’ Meeting. 

All you have to do 
is click here for the List of Suppliers, try a couple of new services and send your feedback. Let me know what you think of the services and I will enter your co-op in the draw! Click here to get the details. Deadline for the draw is March 31, 2019.

Co-ops are the inspiration for Co-op Cost Cutters. It has become the largest buying program in Canada for co-ops. It would not be the amazing program it is without your support!   

I am here for your support. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
