Membership

Those who have attended a Ravens Crossing Cohousing Information Session may be considered for Associate Membership if they meet the other current criteria and if member resources are available. Information sessions are offered regularly and in conjunction with each “Is Cohousing for You”? workshop. Please plan to attend a workshop and information session if you are interested in becoming an Associate. Associates pay a $125 non-refundable fee for up to 3 months where they are invited to participate fully, attend meetings and events, and get a sense of the group and the project!

Forming a community with folks in all ages and stages of life has been part of our vision since the very early days. We’ve made decisions all along the way to work towards this vision: we chose a lovely location in Sidney that neighbours an elementary school, with middle and high schools nearby, transit around the corner, and a wealth of amenities down the street.

We’ve maximized the green space on our site, included homes to fit the needs of families, created indoor and outdoor kid zones, and bike racks cleverly placed for dashes in and out.

We recently decided to take another step to create our multi generational / multi age community. We are inviting households with at least one family member under the age of 50 to participate now as associates.

If that is your household, these next few months are for you to meet us, see how cohousing offers resource sharing, meal prep sharing, and easy access to friends (no driving necessary) all within a caring, sustainable and safe neighbourhood.

We are thanking those over the age of 50 who would like to become an Associate Member for their patience and invite you to complete our survey. Those who indicate an interest in associate membership and want to stay more connected than simply being on our newsletter email list, you’ll have a Ravens Equity member as a contact person. You can ask that person your questions, voice any concerns, offer suggestions and find out about optional get togethers with present and future Ravens. We will contact everyone who let’s us know they would like to become an associate member when the waiting period is over (expected to be by March 2019).

No matter which group you’re in, please complete our survey so we’ll know who you are and can keep in touch!

If you are interested in Ravens Crossing Cohousing we'd love to hear from you. Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey and lets us know more about your interest. SURVEY LINK.
