Baba Yaga Place – Toronto

Inspired by the French initiative called Baba Yaga House, Baba Yaga Place is a made in Canada housing model for seniors, with a particular focus on senior women. Similar to the French project, our community pillars are:

Governance: A self-managed model where key decisions are made by the residents themselves;

Interdependence : Respect for each other’s personal autonomy and privacy, while supporting each other;

Feminism: Commitment to equality, equity, and social justice, with a focus on the empowerment of women;

Community engagement: Involvement with the political, social, and cultural life of the broader community; and    

Environmental responsibility: Commitment to environmental sustainability and environmental justice.
