What We Do

Community Land Trust is a non-profit, social-purpose real estate developer and asset steward, created by the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC.

CLT accepts land and building transfers from the community housing sector.  We also expand housing options, through redevelopment and new projects.  CLT holds these assets in trust for the long-term benefit of the community, so they can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Our projects are designed to meet local needs, whether by upgrading existing housing in partnership with resident communities or providing new homes, available to low and moderate income households.  Some of our sites also include business and community programming spaces. We aim to foster inclusive communities that members and residents are proud to call home.

CLT is organized as a group of non-profit societies. Partnerships are central to the work we do. From land acquisition to financing, construction and development, property management, and ongoing operations, we are joined at the table with organizations who share in our commitment to preserving and expanding community-based housing.

Our portfolio now includes more than 2,600 homes in nearly a dozen communities, with many more on the way.
