Rally to support Thornhill Green

Save Thornhill Green Coop

York Region is going to court to try to force the sale of the assets of Thornhill Green Co-op to its housing company, Housing York, for little more than half the market value. The Co-op and CHF Canada are fighting the sale in court.

Plan to attend a rally in support of Thornhill Green Co-op.

Why Support Thornhill Green

  • Thornhill Green Co-op has been a good neighbour for over 15 years.
  • The co-op is fi nancially sound. It has more than $5.5 million in equity in its property and has received less subsidy than any co-op in the province.
  • There is no reason to sell and lose the benefits of resident-controlled housing.
  • Learn more at this special section of the CHF Canada website.

How You Can Help

Cooperative Holiday Guide

The winter holidays are a time to connect with friends and family and celebrate with each other. Some folks choose to exchange gifts, others hit the party circuit, and others host smaller intimate gatherings. No matter what the occasion, the co-op sector can help you meet your needs this season.

The Ontario Co-operative Association (On Co-op) has put together a Co-op Holiday Guide to help you source all your holiday needs through the co-op sector.
