Janine MacDonald

Co-op Manager


Janine MacDonald has 28 years of experience as a co-op manager and currently works at two Section 95 housing co-ops in Peterborough, Ont. Over the years, she has learned a thing or two about bad contractors, long-term planning, bat guano, leaking roofs and basements, and lobbying governments. For 10 years she lived in a co-op, and her kids still refer to it as "the best place we ever lived." She is happy to share her experiences with others so they might find their silver lining in the chaos.
