The York Non-Profit Housing Society Cooperative (YHSC) is a newly incorporated non-profit leased housing cooperative society dedicated to organizing students and young adults around the disparities in housing that are shaping their personal, professional, and social development by promoting the study and development of leased-housing cooperatives near post-secondary institutions in Toronto. Our goal is to assist students, young adults, staff, faculty, and alumni living in privately regulated and often precarious multi-tenant (rooming) houses off-campus transform their properties into leased housing cooperatives.
Our vision is of a society where access to tenants rights and safe, clean, community-oriented affordable housing is the norm.
