Nelson Co-operative Homes is a 118 unit townhouse complex incorporated in March 1985. The Co-op is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, close to all amenities and is home to 163 members and just as many children of all age range.
Nelson Co-op is comprised of both two and three bedroom units, which range in price from $1031.00 to $1191.00 per month plus utilities.
In 2010 Nelson received a grant of $1.5 million dollars to complete a large variety of renovations and improvement. Units have been updated to ensure that they are energy efficient to help reduce costs to our members.
While Co-op living may not be right for everyone, those who wish to be involved in their community, have the right to have a say in how their community is run and want the ability of raising their family in a small town environment while still having the benefits of a city at their fingertips then this is the place for you.
Co-ops come in many different shapes and sizes, ranging from collections of townhouses and small buildings with 4-12 units to large apartment-style buildings with hundreds of units.
What sets co-ops apart from private rental housing is that they are democratic communities where the residents make decisions on how the co-op operates.
All housing applicants to Nelson Co-op fall into two categories. Applicants for market rent or applicants for subsidized housing charges.
All applicants must complete an application form and then complete an interview with the membership committee whose recommendation must be approved by the Board of Directors of Nelson Co-op.
If Halton Region determines that a household is eligible to receive income, the household will be required to apply for and make reasonable efforts to receive income from one of these programs before receiving rent-geared-to-income assistance.
If an accessible unit (modified for wheelchair) is required, documentation must be provided.
