Currently our waitlist is closed.
Wait-List and Application Process
The length of time on the wait-lists is dependent on housing availability.
Submissions to the wait-list will be kept on file for six months only, at which time you will be contacted by email to ask whether you want to remain on the wait-list. If you do not reply to that email within one week, you will be removed.
When a unit becomes available, those at the top of the wait-list will be required to submit the full application.
The application requires that you must provide 3 consecutive pay stubs for anyone over 19 years of age, as well as a $25.00 (non-refundable, cheque or money order only) for the application processing fee. Only those accepted as prospective members will be contacted.
You will also be required to provide a current criminal record check for all unit residents over 18 years of age, at your own cost.
Your application will be screened, and any successful candidates will be interviewed.
If you are approved for membership, and you accept the unit, a $200 non-refundable deposit is required. This amount comes off your share purchase, according to the size unit you have accepted.
Co-op members form a community that is an alternative to renting or home owning, but gives members the pride of ownership through self-management. It is open to all people with different incomes and backgrounds. Members elect a board of nine directors, who manage and make decisions for the Co-op. The board is assisted by working committees, which help carry out and enforce the policies of the Co-op. These policies are agreed by majority vote of the members in the Co-op; each member counts for one vote.
Participating develops a team spirit and communal pride. Through the Co-operative attitude we make new friends, help each other maintain the atmosphere we want to live in, and develop a happy and healthy community for all of us.
