  • Co-op Housing Lease Renewal Scenarios

    Co-ops have offered residents affordable, community-focused housing options for decades. 

    More than 50 co-ops across Vancouver are leased on land which is owned by the City, and some of these land leases are about to expire.

    This means that new leases need to be negotiated. We want to be mindful of the interests of existing co-op residents, while also being aware of the long-term interests of all Vancouver residents, including future generations.
