This is an episode of our From the Archives series, where shows that got lost in our private archives now get their chance to shine. Because of the changing nature of time, some information may be outdated.
The Co-op Housing Federation of Canada (CHF) is the organized voice of the Canadian co-operative housing movement. Founded in 1968, CHF Canada exists to unite, represent and serve the community of housing co-operatives across Canada and member organizations that support their operation and development.
On tonight’s show we have Scott Jackson, Program Manager for National Communications at the Co-op Housing Federation of Canada since 2009, on the Board of Directors for Rooftops Canada since 2012, and previous programmer on Co-op Radio!
He talks to us about the history and current state of co-op housing in Canada, top concerns for the movement right now (aging infrastructure, aging demographics, promotion of co-op movement, etc.), and a more international look at housing co-ops around the world.
