Market your co-op with beautiful photos for only $300+HST

CHASEO is now offering a new service to help member co-ops market vacant units. We have contracted with a local photographer to take marketing photos that co-ops can use to give prospective members a look at your co-op.

The cost of a half-day (three hour) photography session is $300 +HST.  In this session, the photographer would be able to supply:

  • Exterior photos of the co-op
  • Photos of common areas
  • Photos of a vacant or staged unit if desired.

The photos below were taken by photographer Imogen Reid at Co-op d’habitation Voisins:

Century of Co-operation honours longstanding co-op members

We want to honour longstanding members of our co-op communities!

Here is how your members would qualify for this award:

Add together the age of the member plus the length of time they have lived in co-op housing. For example, a person who is 80 years old and has lived in co-op housing for 20 years qualifies with an even 100 years.

We will recognize everyone who achieves 100 years or more in 2016.

Send us an email with the following information:

  1. The name of your co-op
  2. The name of the member
  3. Member’s year of birth
  4. Number of years member has lived in co-op housing

Century of Co-operation recipients will be honoured at CHASEO’s Fall Education Day on November 19th, 2016.
