Woodsworth Housing Co-op is located in the historic St. Lawrence Neighbourhood in Toronto, close to St. Lawrence Market and within walking distance of shops, services, three schools, community centre and pool, public library and parks. Two bus routes go to subway stations and it is a short walk to the King streetcar and Yonge Street. Woodsworth has a mix of housing units – a 122 stacked mid rise apartment building on Wilton Street and 72 townhouses on George Street South, Albert Franck Place and Frederick Street.The medium rise building has distinctive half-moon windows on alternate storeys. The townhouses include stacked and “mews” units (garage on the ground floor). Unit sizes range from 1 – 4 bedrooms. Woodsworth is proud to be part of the co-operative movement whose history dates from the 19th century and we are guided by the International co-operative principles:
- voluntary and open membership
- democratic control
- member economic participation
- co-operative education
- co-operation among co-operatives
