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.
Tenant & Community Engagement Committee
Deals with getting tenants involved in their communities and issues that impact everyone. If you’re interested in how CCOC gets people engaged in gardening, green living, local and neighbourhood issues, and political advocacy, this is the place to be.
The Tenant and Community Engagement Department is responsible for tenant and volunteer engagement, and for managing community partnerships. They work with tenants on issues which affect the quality of life in their neighbourhoods. They also involve tenants in energy conservation, recycling, gardening and promote CCOC through events and activities that build a sense of community.
