Becoming a member of the Canadian Cohousing Network offers many benefits
to forming and completed cohousing communities:
of the most valuable collaborative tools is the cohousing.ca website.
CCN membership pays for regular advertising and articles in local,
national and international papers that direct readers to the website.
The website can also be found easily using the Internet search
