About Us

Three co-workers in a meeting at the Agency

On behalf of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), the Agency for Co‑operative Housing manages the federal government’s co-operative housing programs in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Prince Edward Island.

Our approach is risk-based, data-driven and client-focused. Using data our clients file on line, we monitor their performance, giving special attention to those in difficulty or at risk. 

Each client receives a suite of plain-language reports on its performance once a year. The reports turn client data into valuable information presented in a reader-friendly way. When clients reach out to us, our staff respond quickly with helpful advice.

No Vacancy Loss

28% of Agency clients lost no money to vacancies last year. Good, if this means members chose to stay in their units. Bad, if new members moved into units that hadn’t been refreshed.
