The False Creek Co-operative Housing Association was founded in 1974 on the motto "People Helping People". We have since, through participation, responsibility and good neighbouring amongst the Members, been able to sustain affordable housing at a prime location in Vancouver. Our Co-op functions through "Co-operative spirit" and involvement from the Members on the following committees: Board of Directors, Finance, Membership, Internal Building Maintenance, External Building Maintenance, Grounds/Gardening (Enclave 5 and 6), Newsletter, Move in-Move out, Apartment Housing, Communal Space, Website and Parking. One of the principles established when the False Creek Co-operative Housing Association came into existence was belief that the Co-op should not be a form of rental-housing. Instead it is a form of home ownership, providing many benefits to the Members, but at the same time also requiring certain commitments from those Members in the form of participation that makes our Community viable, safe and fun to live in. Co-op exists to serve its members. Housing Co-ops offer affordable housing and build communities where members contribute in support of each other.Good governance ensures there is ethical guidance and the structures and processes in place to keep the purpose of the organization in focus and ensure it has the resources to achieve its purpose. Good management ensures that the people, tools and skills are in place to get needed jobs done. Members ensure good leadership by electing a Board of Directors annually and participating in deliberations and decision making. At False Creek Housing Co-op, we promote a healthy community that contributes to everyone’s well being through friendly interactions in our day to day contacts and attention to the work of governing the organization.
The False Creek Co-operative Housing Association aspires to create an inclusive, respectful community that is economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable.
