Thank you for your interest in Heritage Housing Co-operative. We are situated on the corner of West 8th Avenue and Heather Street in Vancouver. We are close to Broadway, Cambie and Oak streets, convenient for shopping and bus services, with several parks and the Seawall just minutes away. The local English language schools are False Creek Elementary School and Kitsilano Secondary School. L’Ecole Bilingue, for French Immersion, is also nearby.
Members are required to participate by attending monthly general meetings, by becoming active on one or more committees and by taking their turn on the cleaning rotation of the community areas.
Co-operative housing is an alternative to buying, not an alternative to renting. We all own and operate the Co-op. The members of Heritage take pride in our strong sense of community. We work collectively to maintain a well-managed, caring housing co-operative. Beyond the requirements, we are a community in tune with the needs of its members and lend a helping-hand whenever and wherever needed.
Desirable co-op members are those who go beyond the required hours of commitment, thus both accepting the responsibilities of maintaining our environment as well as enjoying the benefits of living in an exceptional community.
Heritage Housing Co-op is located on land leased from the City of Vancouver, with the current lease expiring in 2026. The co-op is in discussions with the City regarding a new lease, which may include the possibility of redevelopment. As these discussions are currently in their very early stages, we do not yet have details on what the resulting lease terms will be for Heritage beyond 2026.
