Building Development

The building was developed and belongs to UTILE (Unité de travail pour l’implantation de logement étudiant), a non-profit organization with a mandate to study, develop, and promote affordable cooperative student housing in Quebec. UTILE’s mission has led it to develop housing projects to meet the needs of students across the province.

Management

A major challenge for most renters is simply developing a healthy and proactive relationship with their building’s owner, especially those who specialize in student housing. This is why a non-profit partner organization, SHAPEM, will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day management of the Cooperative’s building―things like collecting rent and making repairs. SHAPEM already manages hundreds of affordable housing units and is recognized for both its flexibility and rigour.
