It’s members run Still Creek Housing Co-op.
There are no landlords.
The members elect a Board of Directors, define and approve policy. The Board of Directors takes direction from the membership, and helps to oversee the running of the Co-op. Committees comprised of member volunteers handle numerous other aspects of Co-op living such as maintenance, gardening, membership issues, social functions and finances.
All members of Still Creek are required to attend General Membership meetings about every 6 weeks.
All members are required to volunteer about 4 hours per month in helping run and maintain the co-op. This level of membership involvement benefits everyone because operating costs are reduced.
A housing Co-op is a corporation owned equally by each member. As a Co-op member you do not directly own your own unit. Instead, you have shares in a corporation which owns the property.
