Thanks to the advocacy of tenants and grant funding from the Community Housing Transformation Centre (CHTC), CCOC was able to install our 13th tenant-led garden at 143-153 Arlington Avenue this Spring, giving residents the opportunity to grow their own food at home, as well as build connections with neighbours and the natural environment.

CCOC has been housing the community since 1974. Since the late 1980s, we have had referral agreements with a number of community partners who provide support services. Over the years, we have also housed many new immigrant and refugee families who are often sponsored by local churches or community groups.

CCOC’s mission as a non-profit housing provider is to create, maintain, and promote affordable housing. This means we have good quality buildings and apartments in walkable downtown neighbourhoods, as well as diverse housing options. So, what’s redevelopment?

If you have walked down Lisgar Street recently, you may have seen a first for CCOC—a new mural! The stunning artwork is by Peatr Thomas, a multidisciplinary Ininew and Anishinaabe artist from the Pimicikamak and Miskooseepi territories.

COVID has changed every aspect of how we engage with each other. It has upended our social lives, workplaces, and personal interactions. This new reality has also shown that in times of need, communities come together and support each other.
