Co-operative Housing: More than a Home [Video]

Canada’s 2,200 housing co-ops provide secure, self-determined, community-oriented affordable housing to a quarter of a million people with wide ranging incomes and backgrounds. This short documentary visits five housing co-ops across Canada, interviewing members and managers about how co-op housing transforms neighbourhoods and improves people’s lives.

This video was produced by Novel Pictures for the Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada to commemorate the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives (IYC). It was selected as one of seven winners of the United Nations IYC Short Film Contest.
