STEWART COURT CO-OP HOUNISG

Welcome to Stewart Court Housing Co-operative

Introduction


Built in the mid 1980’s for retired teachers who had grouped together to form a Co-operative to build and operate an apartment block for ex-teachers. In later years as their, membership dwindled it was decided to open its membership to other people besides being a teacher. The requirement today is you must be at least 55 years old, be able to live independently, plus be willing to participate in the operations of running this building.


The building is run by a Board of Directors which are members of Stewart Court and elected to form and govern the building. We ask that you as a member help us by running the day-to-day operation of the building. Elections are held once a year and we need people that are willing to let their names stand. Day to day operations does not mean you will be asked to cut the grass, clear the snow etc. But being on a committee that looks after certain jobs.

What is a Co-op?


Co-operative operations have been in Canada for a very long time. They are governed by both the Federal and Provincial Governments. In the Housing side we have a Canadian organization that Stewart Court is part of. This organization is called Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada. (CHFC). This organization is responsible for our bylaws, and will negotiate any new policies that the federal Government will make that affect our Co-op. By paying a membership fee you become a member of the Co-op. Our membership fee at Stewart Court is $250.00 per person. This fee will be returned to you if you decide to leave Stewart Court. As a member you are part owner of the building and properties. In other words, also the land lord. Your Board of Directors hold a Board meeting every month. And the minutes plus the financial records are posted. We try to hold at least three membership meetings plus the AGM every year. This is when the auditor reads the financial report and we have elections to find people to run for office.

Stewart Court Co-op Housing


Stewart Court is a modern well maintained apartment block with five floors and 43 suites. All our suites have custom made white Oak kitchen cupboards. All the cupboards are designed to have your own dishwasher installed without losing cupboard space. We have 24 two-bedroom suites and 19 one-bedroom suites. As per Co-op regulations we have a mixture of regular suites and convenience suites for members with light disabilities.


The total patio has been outfitted with floor to ceiling screens so that you may sit outside to use your portable propane BBQ or simply enjoy the fresh air without any pesty bugs or pigeons. You can also install a small outdoor shed on the patio.
