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.

We are getting prepared to start construction in Sidney and want to invite you to join us at our Groundbreaking Ceremony August 19/19 from 1-3pm (ceremony starts at 1:30, refreshments to follow).

We want to honour the past and be in the present as we look to the future at 2325 Brethour, between Resthaven and 7th.

As you likely know, Ravens are considered mischievous, curious and very surprising. Who knows what we’ll get up to on Monday August 19th?
