We are a Calgary cohousing community working to build:
A supportive & sustainable NeighboUrhood
Cohousing is a community of private homes clustered around shared space, with a sustainable and people-oriented design
Designed for spontaneous interactions
Support for families
Vibrant sense of community
Have you had a conversation with a neighbour lately?
Do you feel comfortable knocking at the house next door for an egg?
Do your kids have neighbourhood play dates, no coordination needed?
In a cohousing community, the answer to these questions is YES!
Welcome to our site! We’re 16 households (& growing!) who are planning, laughing, collaborating, sharing meals (and the occasional beer) while we co-create Calgary’s latest human-friendly cohousing neighbourhood. Do you share the dream of a more sustainable and supportive community? Join us in creating that village! We recently got land under contract in Bowness and are looking for our future neighbours. Find out more in our recent newsletter & sign up for future updates! Over 600 communities worldwide have made the dream of cohousing a reality, and we can too!
We want to live in a dynamic neighbourhood where we know and trust our neighbours, while still having privacy in our own homes.
Cohousing is great for all ages, but especially for families with children. In cohousing, neighbours maintain independent incomes and lifestyles, while participating in a ‘sharing economy’ that enriches their lives. You have your own home, with your own kitchen, but have access to amazing shared facilities like gardens, kid’s play areas, workshop/craft spaces, and a huge ‘common house’. Many cohousers look at the common house as an extension of their own residence, because it acts as such a valued part of their day-to-day living - from meals to yoga classes to their child's piano lessons, or guest rooms for visitors to stay in. Your share of the common facilities is at least equivalent to buying an extra bedroom outside of cohousing. Cohousing is designed by future residents via a participatory process, making it unique to anything being built in Calgary today.
Cohousing is a great way for our kids to grow up with a strong network of care, to play freely in a neighbourhood of all ages that celebrates their experiences and holds their best interests in mind. Cohousing neighbourhoods are designed for people-focused living, and facilitate a sharing culture. It creates an environment where everyone feels supported and respected at each stage of our life's journey.
mosaic village will be a thriving, caring, diverse, multigenerational community.

Cohousing is an old-fashioned neighbourhood with a village mindset. No compromises are made to your privacy, and each home is fully finished, with the addition of extensive common amenities. The benefits to residents of any age, whether financial, environmental and social - are extensive!
