Learn About Cohousing

Hear all about cohousing, community, and the growing trend in Canadian neighbourhoods!

Interest in cohousing, a concept from Denmark, has been growing steadily in Canada. In fact, there are already 14 communities already in BC! Many people long for more “community” in their lives and to interact with their neighbours. Others are looking for an altogether new response to social, economic, and environmental challenges of this century. Cohousing is one response where residents are involved in the design and development of their community, containing extensive common spaces to share and gather in, in addition to their private homes.
