A federally incorporated co operative, the Agency for Co-operative Housing (“the Agency”) administers the operating agreements of federal-program housing co-operatives in B.C., Alberta and Ontario / PEI from local offices on CMHC’s behalf. Through its risk-based, data-driven and client-focused approach, the Agency ensures that public funds committed for co-operative housing programs are used as intended and properly accounted for, while safeguarding the public’s investment in good-quality, fairly priced co-operative housing. The Agency measured their ninth annual greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory for the 2016 calendar year and are Climate Smart certified for 2017. Between 2008 and 2015, the Agency implemented a wide variety of programs, targeting emissions from heating and electricity, air travel, staff commuting, and paper use. In 2016, the Agency helped co-found a Greener Co-op Microgrant program, aimed at helping housing co-ops implement environmental upgrades. Moving forward, the Agency would like to minimize their emissions by continuing to focus on strategies aimed at paper use, business travel, and staff commuting.
