How to Apply to The Brambles
This is our application process:
Fill out the eligibility screener
This helps us ensure you understand your eligibility for our co-op and gives us information to contact you if you are eligible and interested in applying. To fill out the screener, please click here.
When we have an opening on our waitlist, someone from the Membership Committee will phone you to see if our community will be a good fit for you. If we are a good match, you will be invited to attend an in-person orientation. There will be a short presentation, time for questions and a tour of common areas of the co-op. You must attend an in-person orientation to receive an application package for membership.
You complete the application and mail it to the address provided. The Membership Committee will review the application and if you bring skills that fit our community, we will contact you to arrange an interview.
The interview will be conducted by three members of the Membership Committee and will be 45 minutes to an hour long. We ask candidates a standard list of questions and provide time for your inquiries at the end of the interview. All members of your family who would like to live at The Brambles need to attend the interview.
Once you have been interviewed, you are then added to the waitlist of our prospective members. You will be required to check in with us every six months to keep your name on the waitlist.
Showing a Unit
When a unit in our co-op becomes available that meets any requests you made during the application process and your skills are what our community needs, the Membership Committee will contact you to view the unit. You will have 24 hours to decide if the unit is the right one for you.
