PROCEDURE FOR CO-OPERATIVES IN THE PRIVATE NON-PROFIT PROGRAM (PSBL-P)
If you want to obtain housing in a co-operative from the Programme sans but lucratif privé (affordable private non-profit program) where all the tenants receive a subsidy to reduce the cost of their rent, you must follow the procedure described on this page and meet the eligibility requirements for this program.
Please note that due to the high demand and the small number of available units, the wait for this type of dwellings can be very long, if you are successful.
