APPLICATION ORIENTATION

Review this document before applying to our co-op.

***Important – Please Read this orientation before beginning your application***

Thank you for considering co-operative living, an alternative life-style which is different than merely renting. Formed in 1982, the Woodland Park Housing Co-op was the first of its kind in the Kootenays. It is on seven acres of wooded parkland and is an ideal place for families, with or without children, to live. The convenient south Castlegar location is close to shopping and major service facilities including supermarkets, banks, and a postal outlet. There is a fully equipped playground for the children on the grounds.

Woodland Park Housing Co-Operative is a member-oriented housing project which offers members a chance to be involved in its management. In applying, please consider that you are not simply moving into a rental unit but rather you are becoming a shareholding member with certain rights and obligations.
