Imagine an innovative elder culture that approaches looming issues in sustainability and health care in an entirely new way. Our aim is to provide the mutual support to flourish, living in an optimal range of human functioning for the rest of our lives. Canadian Senior Cohousing combines the well-established international model of senior cohousing with new ideas for active aging here in Canada.

The Sooke News Mirror wrote about Harbourside and Royal Roads University’s course on March 6, 2013.
There is lots of interest in Harbourside right now and we volunteers are unable to hold long phone conversations or offer private tours. We are encouraging anyone seriously interested to come to an information session (March 16 or April 12) and/or take the course required for equity membership. Here’s the link to register http://cstudies.royalroads.ca/courses/PEHL3410-Y13.htm
There are still guest rooms available in our Common House if you want accommodation during the course. The rate is $60 per night per room, no tax. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a room.
Either an info sessions or the course are the entry point for becoming an associate member ($125 per household for three months). Then, once you have registered for the course, attended a business meeting, and filed a net worth statement with Ronaye Matthew (our project manager) you can qualify to become an equity member ($20,000) which lets you reserve a unit.
At the moment there are 9 units still available, including all unit types. Info about unit types is available at www.harbourside.ca and on this website under Harbourside
We hope you can come see us soon.
