Kawartha Commons

Peterborough, Ontario

Kawartha Commons is building a neighbourhood in Peterborough Ontario, an hour’s drive northeast of Toronto. We have recently engaged Katie McCamant of CoHousing Solutions as our consultant. Regarded as one of North America’s preeminent cohousing experts, we are excited to be moving forward with Katie in bringing our project to life.

We have recently incorporated too, and we are actively looking for a site within 4-5 kilometres of downtown Peterborough, where we expect to build 20 to 30 units by 2023. Our membership comprises 21 households, and we are working closely together to create and define a cohesive community and design its physical layout.

Our decision-making process is participatory and non-hierarchical, and is based on Sociocracy. We are committed to the design principles and procedures as defined by Chuck Durrett and Katie McCamant.

We are always looking for new members. Please join us in building our community, and for socializing too – we believe in good people, good food, and good fun!
