Become a Member of CHASEO
Providing leadership, management and governance support for housing co-operatives in the Greater Ottawa / Eastern Ontario region.
What is CHASEO?
What do we do and who do we represent?
A group of housing co-ops members founded the Co-operative Housing Association of Eastern Ontario (CHASEO) to promote the development of new co-ops and to provide services/education for the co-operative housing sector.
Co-operative housing is a unique model that is deeply responsive to its members’ needs. It is a form of housing that develops collectively, and it’s structured to ensure a democratic process that builds a shared voice and community.
Today, CHASEO is a member-supported organization representing more than 4,226 members living in more than 54 non-profit housing co-operatives located in the region of Ottawa.
