Great Rivers Cohousing
Seeking to enrich our lives through close collaboration with each other, we are creating a caring and supportive community. Our site will be located on a quiet street within walking distance of day-to-day needs, cafés and restaurants, public transportation, green space, and water. Our housing will consist of low-rise apartments (up to four floors), townhouses, and a comfortable common space for sharing meals, meeting together, and pursuing mutual interests. This is a multi-generational community with space for 14 to 24 households, and an expected completion date in 2026.
Our core values are collaboration, kindness, inclusion, and environmental sustainability.
We are committed to using energy efficient building design, and incorporating environmental stewardship into our community life after moving in. We have have about one in-person meeting and one virtual meeting each month. We welcome people of diverse ages, abilities, identities, and cultures, and invite you to “explore” becoming a member of the Great Rivers Cohousing community.
The city of Ottawa sits at the intersection of three great rivers: the Ottawa, the Rideau, and the Gatineau. This makes for an abundance of opportunities for active outdoor pursuits within a short drive. Our location in urban Ottawa provides access to the vibrant culture of a nation’s capital, extensive cycling pathways, and the Rideau Canal Skateway.
