OUR COMMUNITY

Kingston Co-operative Homes is located in a quiet residential area near Downtown Kingston in Ontario, Canada.
We have picnic tables, benches, a games arena and a gazebo, all under large mature trees. As owners and managers of our co-operative, we the residents strive to provide a beautiful, safe, well maintained and affordable place to live.
About half of our homes offer a "geared to income" housing charge (rent) for low income members.

All of the residents of Kingston Co-operative Homes collectively own and manage the property and buildings. We have a Board of Directors who are elected by the general membership to manage and supervise the operations of the co-op. We also have several committees that provide a variety of services to the community. Our property co-ordinator manages our every day operations under the direction of the Board of Directors.

All members of the community contribute a minimum of 4 hours a month by performing outside work, working on a committee, or by accomplishing necessary tasks.
Members also attend two or three General Members' meetings a year plus our spring and fall clean-ups.
Effective participation by all members helps keep our housing charges competitively low and builds the kind of community we want.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS Elected by the membership to manage and supervise the operations of the co-op.
