Chemainus Cohousing

2988 Elliot St, Chemainus, British Columbia

Discover the perfect blend of community, sustainability, and a West Coast lifestyle at Chemainus Cohousing. This is your chance to join a vibrant and friendly neighbourhood, where you’ll enjoy the benefits of an intentional community, including shared meals and celebrations, all while living in a self-contained private home.

Our all-ages community will be resident-designed, which means you’ll be involved in the decision-making process through workshops and meetings. We use consensus-based processes, so everyone has a say in the community’s development. Cohousing design fosters meaningful interactions between neighbours, so you’ll get to know everyone on your street.

Chemainus Cohousing features a shared common house where you can socialize and participate in community activities like movie nights, yoga, and dance classes. We are working with the North Cowichan Regional District to have access to their parcel on Elliot.  This site is conveniently located, adjacent to Chemainus Secondary School and just steps away from the ocean, community gardens, and the charming market centre of the historic village.

As the project gets going, members will invest a minimum of $50,000, which will be recorded as shares in Chemainus Cohousing Company. Discounts for early investments are available. Cohousing is more than just another strata; it’s a true community where you can raise your family, age in place, and thrive at all stages of life. Pets are welcome!

Join us in shaping the culture of this community, and be part of an active, sustainable, and enjoyable West Coast lifestyle. Sign up for our email newsletter, join an “all about cohousing” Zoom session, or email us at to learn more about this rare opportunity to join Chemainus Cohousing.
