Check out Lost Lake Cohousing!

Lost Lake Cohousing is a newly forming cohousing community in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We have 3 forested acres in North Nanaimo under contract at 5180 Universal Place, and we are gathering a multi-generational community to input on the design priorities in terms of goals that the design will achieve.

This discussion will set the stage for our Site Design workshop on April 23 and 24.

Members will be influential in shaping the culture of our community and experience the excitement of seeing the community being built. Our common denominator is that we all share a desire to live in a neighbourhood that fosters an active and supportive community lifestyle. We plan to share and enjoy many meals together in our common house.
