NEW) EX­EC­U­TIVE DI­REC­TOR, CO-OP­ER­A­TIVE HOUS­ING FED­ER­A­TION OF BC

Com­mu­nity Builder Arm­strong has been called an “en­tre­pre­neur­ial de­vel­oper,” even though he works as the ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Co-op­er­a­tive Hous­ing Fed­er­a­tion of BC. That’s be­cause he has taken the con­cept of com­mu­nity land trusts—land owned by cities but ded­i­cated to a‚ord­able hous­ing in per­pe­tu­ity—and run with it. He’s worked with mul­ti­ple mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, in­clud­ing Van­cou­ver, to de­velop low-cost hous­ing, us­ing the ex­per­tise and eq­uity of a large or­ga­ni­za­tion.
