Meet some of our members:

Monique and Jim: Monique, a retired library technician, has been a trained yoga instructor since 2008. Married to Jim, with adult children and their families living nearby, she wishes everyone could live in cohousing to benefit from life in an intergenerational community. Jim, a licensed professional engineer with extensive experience leading multi-disciplinary teams and managing major industrial projects, is currently working part-time as a consultant, while playing part-time hockey, pickle ball and swimming among other outdoor activities. He lives in harmony among vegetarians and likes to fix things --"if they don't find you handsome they should find you handy" -- and is looking forward to creating and living in a thriving neighbourhood!

Learn more: Coffee and Cohousing online session Saturday, July 11 at 10:30 a.m.
