The Quebec Manor Housing Co-op

Incensed at the prospect of a 65% rent increase in 1980, the residents of the 32-suite Quebec Manor apartment building organized themselves into The Manor Housing Co-op, and as a co-operative, applied to CMHC for financing a mortgage, and bought the building.

The Quebec Manor, located at 7th Avenue and Quebec Street, was built in 1911 and features patterned brickwork, bay windows, as well as nine foot high ceilings. Recognizing its beauty, the co-op members applied to the city for heritage status.

On July 21, 2012, in the UN International Year of Cooperatives, we will celebrate the centenary of our building.
