Birchwood Meadow Housing Co-Operative Inc. is a 6 storey, 70 unit apartment building located on Ogilvie Road in Ottawa, Ontario. The Co-Operative was incorporated under the Co-Operative Corporations Act of Ontario in 1987 and has operated as a business since that time. The building itself was substantially completed in May 1989 and occupation of units began at that time. Birchwood Meadow is a federally sponsored Co-Operative, and has an Operating Agreement with CMHC that provides the administrative structure the Co-Operative must operate under. CMHC has guaranteed the mortgage of the Co-Operative (100%) which allows the business to operate as a Not for Profit entity.
As in most other not for profit organizations, the Co-Operative operates under the management of a Board of Directors who are elected by the Membership. The Board is comprised of 5 Members and all Directors must reside in the building and be Members in good standing. Directors serve for a 2 year term and do not receive any remuneration.
What Is A Co-op?
A housing Cooperative is a group of people who form a corporation to provide housing services for themselves. Co-op living is unique to all other forms of housing because it represents a community living within a community.
Democratic management is the lifeblood of a healthy co-op and the people who live in the co-op.
To apply for membership at Birchwood Meadow Housing Co-Operative you have to complete an application form and return it to the Co-operative Office fully completed with all of the required documentation and credit information.
