CCOC is directed and controlled by volunteers. Our organization is structured into five committees and departments overseen by the Board of Directors, plus a sixth Personnel Committee dedicated to dealing with personnel-related concerns.
Deals with the development, acquisition and financing of new properties. They are a creative bunch who look for clever ways to create new housing. This committee informs the work of the Development Department.
The Development Department works to acquire or build new CCOC properties. They also keep a close eye on regulations and city planning to make sure we can continue to grow and offer new affordable housing.
Deals with the financial administration of CCOC, its investments and long-term viability. If you want to know what is happening: follow the money! This committee informs the work of the Finance Department.
The Finance Department collects the rent and sends rent receipts. They are responsible for taking legal action, which can result in eviction, if tenants do not pay their rent, so please pay your rent! They also manage CCOC’s budgets, maintain financial records and look after CCOC computer systems.
Membership & Communications Committee
Deals with communication with CCOC tenants and the community. If you’re interested in how CCOC spreads the word and gets people involved in gardening, green living, local issues and political advocacy through the web, social media, posters and workshops, this is the place to be. This committee informs the work of the Membership and Communications Department.
The Membership & Communications Department is responsible for membership and volunteer engagement, corporate communications, and community partnerships. They work to involve tenants in energy conservation, recycling, gardening and neighbourhood issues and to promote CCOC through events and activities that build a sense of community.
