Is CO-OP Housing right for you?

Co-operative Housing - More than a Home


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.



How to Apply to a Co-op

Edmonton area co-ops have very long waiting lists.  You can expect anywhere from a 3 month to 5 year wait for a vacancy.  Please be aware that not all co-ops have subsidies available.

  1. Attend a mandatory information session.
  2. Select co-ops of interest from the co-op listing.
  3. Apply to each co-op individually following their specific application process

Note: NACHA is not involved in the placement of families in its member housing co-ops.
