Welcome to the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto

Serving Co-ops in Durham, Toronto and York Region

Our Vision

Our vision of who we are is also shaped by our commitment to give service of the best possible quality at a fair price.
We define our commitment to serve through the aims that Canadian housing co-operatives hold in common.

What is CHFT?

In 1974, a group of non-profit housing co-operatives set up a small organization to promote the development of new co-ops and to provide the education and assistance needed by the growing co-operative housing sector.

Today, the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto (CHFT) is a member-supported organization representing more than 45,000 people living in more than 160 non-profit housing co-operatives located in Toronto and York Region.
