One of the reasons our units are so affordable is that much of the work required to maintain and administer the co-op is done by members. There is a three month "settling in" period after your move in date during which your particpation is not mandatory, but after that all members over the age of 16 are required to participate a minimum of four hours per month in some aspect of the co-op's operation, and many choose committee work to fulfill their participation obligations. The number of hours you contribute are referred to as your PIPs (Particpation Involvement Points). If your daily schedule makes it difficult for you to attend regularly scheduled committee meetings, contact the co-op office to inquire into other opportunities to fulfill your PIPs.

If you are a member of a committee, the committee chairperson automatically records and submits your attendance to the co-op office. If you are performing work not associated with a committee you must submit a PIP form, available from the co-op office.

Check out the list of committees to see what interests you:


Assist with the financial administration of the co-op. The Finance Committee reviews the co-op's balance sheet and reports its status and any financial issues to the Treasurer.

Cleaning, Move In/Move Out

Help keep our units clean and attractive by assisting with inspections and cleaning duties.


Participate in maintaining the natural appearance of the co-op by cutting grass, planting flowers and shrubs, removing debris, etc.


Assist with routine light maintenance of our units including appliance removal and replacement, replacement of furnace filters, etc.


Participants interview prospective co-op members, whose recommendations are reviewed by the Board of Directors for consideration.

Member Relations

If member issues are your interest, consider the Member Relations Committee.


Participate in assembling the co-op's monthly newsletter. All writers and artists welcome!


Have some great ideas that will help foster participation at the co-op? Then this is the committee for you.


There are many enthusiastic pet owners at the co-op. If you're one of them, consider the Pet Committee.

PIP Submissions

Successful co-op membership is based on equal particpation, which the PIP Submissions Committee ensures by tracking the particpation of every member.

Social and Kids Club

Do you consider yourself a good coordinator? Enjoy kids? The Social and Kids Club Committee brings us together for summer barbeques, Christmas parties and more... and they have fun doing it!

Web Site

Promoting affordable housing to York Region residents is the primary goal of this Web site. If you like to surf the Web, take pictures or know a bit about Web site design, you belong on the Web Site Committee.


Establishing that first connection with a new family at the co-op is an important and rewarding experience. The Welcoming Committee welcomes YOU in putting smiles on our new members!

Board of Directors

Members are also strongly encouraged to consider particpation on the co-op's Board of Directors (BOD). As a BOD member your PIPs obligations are automatically fulfilled. The nine member board meets approximately twice per month to discuss and vote on co-op issues, and is the liaison between the co-op's members and York Region Housing. BOD positions include:

  • President (1)
  • Vice-President (1)
  • Treasurer (1)
  • Secretary (1)
  • Directors (5)

BOD members serve a minimum two year term and are elected at one of the co-op's quarterly member meetings. Inquire about vacant positions by contacting the co-op office.
