British Columbia’s gold standard in co-operative housing management since 1984

Not for profit. Tied to the sector. Obsessed with client success.


Professional management services for housing cooperatives

With over 30 years of experience, we have grown to become Canada’s largest and most successful co-op management company. In that time, we’ve also learned a thing or two about helping co-ops build successful communities.

 Trust the people who know housing co-ops best. Trust COHO.


Our Clients Love Us!

…and we love them right back.

It makes us happy to know that our clients are well taken care of. We’re even happier when they tell us.


Time and again, we help put our clients on the road to success

COHO Management Services Society

At COHO, we’ve traveled down a long road, hand-in-hand with our clients. We have grown together. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, and excited about what the future holds.


Each housing co-op is unique, and has its own unique needs. COHO offers management and maintenance solutions for British Columbia co-ops that are flexible, effective, and tailored to our clients’ specific needs. No “cookie-cutter” solutions here.


Routine administrative tasks can take up a lot of your time that could be better spent on governance and community issues. Let us help. There’s no task too large or small for COHO’s talented team.


Our financial services team is the best in the business, hands down. With decades of experience and an unshakable commitment to ensuring our clients’ success, COHO’s stellar reputation is well earned.


No other management company understands the co-op housing landscape quite like COHO does. Whatever the funding program or governance model, rest assured that your community is in expert hands.


As our buildings age, the need for professional maintenance services has never been more critical. Trust COHO’s talented coordinators, technicians, and inspectors to get the important jobs done right… the first time.
