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.
Cohousing is “an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space”.
Canadian Cohousing Network has lists of books, audiovisual media, and other links in their “resources” section, as well as
