Co-op Housing

Kingston has a number of co-operative housing units in neighbourhoods throughout the city. The goal of co-operative housing is to provide affordable accommodation to residents. Some co-ops have government funding to offer rent-geared-to-income units for tenants on low incomes (see also Subsidized Housing).

Co-operative housing refers to homes and apartments that are collectively owned by the people who live in them. Members of a co-op set policy, make decisions and elect a board of directors. Co-operatives do not have landlords and depend on members to run the organization.

Co-operatives are usually open to anyone, but some cater to certain populations such as students or seniors.
