Read Scoop Summer 2017 online now!

Our latest issue of Scoop magazine underscores the power of partnerships in building a brighter future for co-op housing in our province and across the country.

In this edition, you'll find a collection of stories from members who are making a mark in their communities, long-established co-ops celebrating new successes and a peek at an innovative project nearing completion. You'll also meet our new Seniors Resource Coordinator and, you'll hear more about the many ways housing co-ops get real value from their membership in CHF BC. 

Find the current issue at and read back issues of the magazine at

Happy Pride Week!

Happy Pride Week to everyone, especially our members who identify as LGBTQ2. You are a source of strength and joy in our movement and we all celebrate this week together.

Win big with our Telecom program!

If you are already enjoying enjoying deep discounts on HDTV, high-speed internet and home phone services in our Telecom program with Telus, we have a great offer for you.  Because it's our 35th birthday this year, we’ll say thanks with a $35 gift card to Superstore (or participating Loblaw's grocery stores) if you refer another member of your co-op who signs up for the program.

And if you’re a co-op member who isn’t enjoying those savings on your telecom services, sign up now and we’ll enter your name in a draw to win an iPad mini.

To claim your referral prize or enter the draw, find out how here.


You can learn more about the Telecom program at or contact our program coordinator at
