something about

Cooperative Housing
Kinship Coop - Gardens

What makes co-op different?

Besides the inclusive community you instantly become part of, living in a housing co-op includes security of tenure and a quality home aligned with your income.

So, why co-op?

Living in a housing co-op includes security of tenure, a quality home aligned with your income, and a sense of community you can’t find elsewhere.

Fair prices

Co-op communities are driven by a mission, not a profit. The benefit? A Vancouver address with a fair price.

You have a voice

Kinship members collaborate with Community Land Trust in the management of their co-op community, and most decisions are made based on a democratic vote.

Community first

Kinship attracts members with shared values and lifestyles. Being involved in co-op events and initiatives, members foster strong and lasting relationships with one another.
