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.

Good Vacancy Loss

Some vacancy loss is by choice, because units are being refreshed for new members. So not a loss but an investment.
