Alexandra Park Co-operative is located in downtown Toronto just north of Queen Street West and east of Bathurst Street.

We are within walking distance of Scadding Court Community Centre, Sanderson library, Chinatown, Kensington Market, chic Queen Street West and a number of schools.

Ours is the first Co-op built in Ontario; we have 104 units comprised of four three-story walk-up apartment buildings which have one and two bedroom units, and townhouses which have three and four bedroom units. The townhouses have a basement and a backyard.

This Co-op is not wheelchair accessible.

There is no subsidy available.

Our regrets. We are not presently accepting applications.

 

How does a Co-op work?

Like all Co-ops, there is no landlord who makes a profit from your rent; the members who live here run the Co-op through a democratically elected Board of Directors, committees of volunteer members and attendance at General Member meetings.

This is how we keep costs down: members volunteer! Your volunteer work could be anything from sitting on the co-op board or a committee, to gardening or snow-shovelling. All members have a duty to attend regular Member meetings, held three (3) times a year.

Committees a member can participate on are:
» Membership
» By-Laws
» Finance
» Capital Planning
» Social
» Green

How is a Co-op different from rental apartments?

The advantages of Co-op living include: housing charges (rent) may be below market rates, excellent maintenance of our buildings, long-term residence, security and a strong sense of community.

The co-op employs four staff, a full time Maintenance Manager, a full time Community Manager, a permanent part-time Finance Manager, and a permanent part-time Cleaner.

How can I apply for membership?

To apply for membership, you MUST complete a application form.
