We host information sessions on a regular basis as well as in conjunction with "Is Cohousing for You" weekend workshops. Information sessions provide an introduction to cohousing, an opportunity to meet members of the Ravens Crossing Cohousing community and find out more about the Ravens Crossing Cohousing development. All are welcome and coming along to an information session can be your start to associate membership. Please plan to attend an information session if you are interested in becoming an Associate Member.

The "Is Cohousing for You" workshops are led by Margaret Critchlow, PhD. Margaret is a Founding Member of Harbourside Cohousing and a consultant with Cohousing Development Consulting. Her workshop Is Cohousing for You? is required for equity membership in our project and is also a great way to find out more about cohousing concepts. 

Ravens Crossing will host information sessions and the weekend workshop "Is Cohousing for You?" throughout the year. We'll post information on these on our website and Facebook as well as notification through our newsletter


upcoming information sessions and “is cohousing for you?” workshop....
