The people who live at Access always greet you with a smile and are genuinely interested in the well-being of the people they live around.
A lot of our members really take pride in making their gardens their own. We have some common gardens and some suites even have their own little patches.
SAFE PLAY AREAS
With the nostalgic wooden playground in the main outdoor common area on 7th, the paths that lead around the co-op or Kaslo park across the street, there’s always something fun for the kids to do.
Access’ founding members made a point to ensure that Access was for everybody. As such, when it was built in 1979, every unit and part of the co-op was wheelchair accessible.
CLOSE TO TRANSPORTATION
Broadway’s B-Line stops just a block from our address and the Renfrew Skytrain station is three more blocks down the hill. No matter where you’re going, it’s a short trip to transportation.
The people that live at Access truly make it what it is. Neighbours are constantly standing outside catching up on each others’ lives and sharing jokes. Helping each other out is what we’re all about!
LIVING AT ACCESS CO-OP
I've never before lived in a place that felt like a real community. When we go away for the weekend, we always know that there's going to be four neighbours with eyes on our place. We love living here and think it's a great place to raise a family!
WHY CHOOSE CO-OP HOUSING?
Co-op housing is an affordable alternative to rental housing – but it is also so much more. It is being involved and invested in the decisions that are made about managing the buildings and maintaining a community. It is choosing to live in an inclusive environment where everyone is encouraged to participate and engage.
