CAMPUS CO-OP MEMBERS democratically own 24 renovated Victorian homes in the Annex area of Toronto. Each of our homes has unique histories, cultures and pricing and some have additional application requirements.
Our houses are divided into two groups based on governance structure. Click the links below to read more about each of our homes.
Each co-op home is governed democratically by the members who live within it. Each home has three officers: The labour officer, the membership officer, and the maintenance officer who serve their housemates by keeping operations running smoothly. These houses can elect a member from within their ranks to the board of representatives. They operate based on the policies and procedures put forth by the members of CCRI.
The following homes are co-op homes:
- 84 Lowther Avenue (Freda Manson House)
- 95 Wilcocks Street (Kagawa House)
- 169 Lowther Avenue (Rupert House)

Each Participatory-Democracy (PD) Home is also governed democratically by the members who live within it. These homes can determine their own officer roles based on the needs and interests of their members. These officers serve their housemates by keeping operations running smoothly. PD homes can self-select future members and create protocol for doing this. These houses can elect a member from within their ranks to the board of representatives. They operate based on the policies and procedures put forth by the members of CCRI and have the ability to ratify additional policies for their houses based on the needs and interests of their members.
PD houses take on additional responsibility in house governance to account for the fact that they often take on additional community-based initiatives such as group meals or inter-community involvement and activism.
The following homes are PD homes:
- 120 Madison Avenue (Jane Jacobs House)
- 165 Lowther Avenue (Savage House)
- 167 Lowther Avenue (MacPhail House)
