The Northern Alberta Co-operative Housing Association (NACHA) is a federation of Housing Co-operatives. We provide a variety of services to our membership and to the public who are interested in finding out more about cooperative housing.
We offer a variety of information/resources including a monthly public information session that can assist families in becoming members of a housing cooperative project.
Some Edmonton area co-ops have very long waiting lists. You can expect anywhere from a 3 month to 3 year wait for a vacancy. As a result, we recommend that you inquire with the co-op that does not currently have a vacancy if they have a waiting list and how long it could take. Please be aware that not all co-ops have subsidies available.
Note: NACHA is not involved in the placement of families in its member housing co-ops.
You are invited to take part in NACHA/SACHA 2021 Goldeye Conference. Co-ops and other groups that are not yet members of NACHA are also welcome to attend.
Members: $75 + GST per attendee
Youth (Members aged 35 and Under): $37.50 + GST per attendee
Non-Members: $100 + GST per attendee
The maximum cost is $150 per housing co-op so we are encouraging you to send more than two members.
The registration fee includes the Plenary and one workshop.

Due to the concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we thought it was prudent to cancel our events that were scheduled to take place in March and April 2020. For more information about our response, please review our communication.
We will update this site as new information is available, so please check periodically and stay safe.
The NACHA/TELUS Partner Program is available to all housing co-op members. The program provides enhanced offers, savings, and customer service.
Is your internet too slow? What can you do to make it faster? One option to improve internet services is via Telus’ PureFibre technology. We know that sounds like a great idea but what’s the cost the co-op. That’s the beauty of the offer, Telus will absorb 100% of the cost.
To help you make a decision we have provided you with a variety of information. You can find all the details here.
If your co-op is interested, consider inviting a Telus representative to your Board Meeting to answer any questions you may have.
At the 2019 NACHA General Meeting and Fall Education Event we released the NACHA 2020 – 2025 Strategic Plan. You can take a look at the main points of the Strategic Plan here.
