We are a diverse and adventuresome group of various ages, single and couples, working and retired, who have intentionally come together to form Winnipeg's first cohousing community. Our group is actively working on the project and growing its list of members.
We look forward to designing and living in a universally accessible multigenerational community which will facilitate social interaction and environmental sustainability.
