Welcome to the website of Concorde Cohousing, an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space that is forming in Ottawa Canada.

The goal of this site is to let you get to know us without being overwhelming…which means whatever you are looking for* should be here, but might not be.

If you feel we’ve overlooked something or have any questions about our group, please get in touch so we can help.  Thanks!

 

*about Concorde.  Homework answers, next week’s lottery numbers, etc., will always be outside our purview!

About Concorde

We are working to create a multi-generational cohousing community in Ottawa. We want to have units of different sizes on a site near public transit, grocery stores, parks and libraries.

We chose the name Concorde because the root of the word “concord” means “hearts together.” We are committed to the work of learning to live in harmony with each other, recognizing each person’s unique gifts while balancing the needs of individuals with the needs of the community. We want our neighbourhood to be sustainable, inclusive, and joyful.
