Our Cohousing Initiative
It all started when...
In June 2015 eleven people got together to visualize a way they would like to live…and thus the Perth Cohousing Initiative was launched. Since then the group has grown in size and resolve. We invite you to check us out, come to a meeting, enjoy !
Where? Perth, a small, dynamic town in Eastern Ontario, one hour southwest of Ottawa.
Who are we? Seniors who are deciding how we want to live – and that is independently, actively engaged in our community, open to helping others and being helped, and living with concern and respect for the environment and sustainability.
The projected physical aspects of the community: ideally 12 private dwellings in the form of attached townhouses or in apartment-style building. While each one or two-bedroom dwelling will have its own kitchen, there will be welcoming common spaces for some shared meals and gatherings. Green construction technologies and energy efficient systems will be used whenever possible.
Cost: We expect price per unit will reflect average market cost; and we are currently researching how to finance one or two rental units.
