About IACETE Housing Co-operative Societies

The problem of housing shortage presented itself in a very acute form during World War II and the period following it. This problem was particularly felt in the big cities. Some provinces have used the co-operative agency for relieving the housing shortage. A housing cooperative is a legal mechanism for ownership of housing where residents either own shares (share capital co-op) reflecting their equity in the cooperative’s real estate, or have membership and occupancy rights in a not-for-profit cooperative (non-share capital co-op), and they underwrite their housing through paying subscriptions or rent.
