There are 2 forming cohousing groups in Toronto…
1) Wine on the porch which would reside in the same house and
2) Canopy CoHousing which would be independent units with a common house:
Wine on the Porch is exploring a new concept in co-housing for active and creative aging. We plan to establish a shared residence in downtown Toronto, a home where we remain independent by becoming interdependent.
It will include both private living areas and common space where people 50+ can support each other as we move into later years.
It will be organized as an equity co-op and self-managed according to co-op principles. Initial members will be full participants in the design and development of the community.
We’re planning for an inclusive community of 8 to 12 persons.
