Welcome to Kenfinch Co-operative Homes
Kenfinch Co-operative housing, Inc. is an 86-unit townhouse complex located in Scarborough, Ontario and has been providing quality, secure and affordable housing since 1983. The Co-op consists of three and four bedroom units along with 4 accessible units. It is a family oriented community with amenities such as a community centre, visitors parking and three playgrounds.
The co-operative is governed under the Co-operative Corporations Act, therefore the residents are members, not tenants. All members of the Co-op have a right to vote and take part in governing their community. Members take ownership of the Co-op to develop a truly democratic and diverse community which meet their own needs and expectations.
There are many kinds of co-operatives: food co-ops, co-op daycares, credit unions, retail co-ops, worker co-ops and housing co-ops. Any group of people can form a co-operative. The members own the co-operative and the co-operative provides a service they need. Housing co-operatives provide housing.
To apply to our co-operative, a prospective member must fill out a Membership Application package and submit it to the co-operative with certain required documents. A portion of your application will be forwarded to the KenFinch Membership Selection Committee who will then call you for an interview.
Floor Plans & Rates
A Housing Charge in a co-op is the equivalent to rent in commercial housing. Co-op Member housing charges pay the mortgage, property taxes, capital expenses and operating costs. Because the co-op is a not-for-profit organization, housing charges tend to be lower than rents in similar commercial units.
