Currently our waitlist is closed.
Wait-List and Application Process
The length of time on the wait-lists is dependent on housing availability.
The waitlist and unit applications will both be required to abide by the Co-Op’s unit capacity requirements:
- 2-bedroom units are permitted to have between 1-4 people residing within, on a full time basis
- 3-bedroom units are permitted to have between 2-6 people residing within, on a full time basis
Submissions to the waitlist will be kept on file for approximately six months only, at which time you will be contacted by email to ask whether you want to remain on the waitlist. 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 process will require:
- All applicants to attend a compatibility interview,
- A non-refundable processing fee of $25.00 (cheque or money order only),
- 3 consecutive pay stubs for anyone over 19 years of age,
- A credit check for both the primary and associate member applicants, and
- A current criminal record check for all unit residents over 18 years of age, at your own cost
Only those accepted as prospective members will be contacted.
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.
If you have accepted a unit, regardless of whether it is a 2-bedroom or 3-bedroom unit, any requests to transfer to
another unit will not be approved by the Board of Directors for at least the first 12 months of your membership.
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.
- Each house is allowed two pets (cat, dog or rabbit; see pet policies)
- IN ADDITION TO ATTENDING THE GENERAL MEETINGS, MEMBERS OF HARRIS ROAD CO-OP ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE WITH THE COMPLEX BOARD OF DIRECTORS, CLEANING, MAINTENANCE, OR ONE OF THE VARIOUS COMMITTEES FOR A MINIMUM OF FOUR 4 HOURS PER MONTH.
