Get Involved

Want to meet your neighbours, plan events that bring people together, and join activities in your neighbourhood?

Become a Tenant Leader

The Tenant Advisory Group (TAG)  provides a link between OCH tenants and the Board of Directors. District-Based Committee (DBC) meetings provide a forum for the exchange of information between OCH and its tenants. Contact your nearest OCH office to participate, or contact the DBC Chair directly.
