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.

In 2004, the Co-operative Housing Federation of Toronto launched the CHFT Diversity Scholarship Program. The program is for people living in CHFT member housing co-ops.
