Abstract: The NON PROFIT CO-OPERATIVE HOUSING FEDERATIN OF NOVA SCOTIA began in 1979, and presently includes 35 co-operatives. There is a fear among resource groups and housing co-operatives that CMHC may cut this programme, thereby removing any alternative renting.
The FDEDERATION's present goal is the development of strong federation which can stimulate discussion among co-operatives and develop policies which represent their interest:
1. Making respresentation to the Nova Scotia Rent Review Commission to exclude non-profit hosuing from rent review;
2. Develop a list of courses available on house maintenance and furnace repair;
3. Researching the possibility of negotiating a bulk oil deal with Co-op Atlantic;
4. Carrying out an ongoing organizing drive to get all non-profit housing and co-operatives in Nova Scotia
to become members of the FEDERATION.
This organization no longer exists.
