Donna Charbonneau joined the Agency in 2006 as a relationship manager, assuming the role of Manager, Operations (Ontario / PEI) in 2017. She first became involved in co-operative housing as a member of Ramer’s Wood Housing Co-operative in Toronto in the late 1980s. While working as a co-op manager for more than a decade, she served as member and officer on the boards of the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto (CHFT) and the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada (CHF Canada). An admired leader throughout the years before the Agency was founded, Donna is an Honorary Lifetime Associate of CHF Canada and an Honorary Board Member of CHFT.
In co-ops where board members are behind on their housing charges, the amount all members owe is almost four times higher than in co-ops where board members pay on time. Coincidence or contagion?
