Tolpuddle is a community that offers affordable housing targeted to singles, couples, small families and students.
Housing Co-ops are welcoming places where all members have the right to live with dignity, free from harassment and discrimination.
All Co-op members play an important role in making sure their co-op is a safe place to live. Housing Co-ops are encouraged to make sure their boards of directors reflect the diversity of their members – and that their members also reflect the diversity of the community.
Supporting diversity within housing co-ops is a priority for Canada’s co-operative housing movement.
