Cohousing is a unique kind of housing – planned, financed and owned by a group of people who become the residents. This housing model is about consciously creating trust and friendship amongst a group of people who choose to live independently yet in a community-minded way.
There are more than a dozen completed cohousing communities in Canada, and at least 18 in the forming, development or construction phases.
To learn more about cohousing, please visit the Canadian Cohousing Network. Their FAQ page is particularly informative for those new to cohousing. We have also added an FAQ page to this website, which has some info more specific to this project.
