About Us

About Us

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 PEI.

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.

Capital Reserve Contribution

Half of Agency clients have more than doubled their contributions to their capital-replacement-reserves since 2007. For 38%, per-unit contributions are up by more than $1,000 a year.
