Becoming a member of the Canadian Cohousing Network offers many benefits to forming and completed cohousing communities:
- One of the most valuable collaborative tools is the cohousing.ca website. CCN membership pays for regular advertising and articles in local, national and international papers that direct readers to the website. The website can also be found easily using the Internet search engines. By grouping together on one website, members can benefit not only from CCN’s advertising, but also from every member’s outreach and promotion. As more groups use the website and provide advertising that ties into it, the value and exposure will increase.
- Membership includes a paragraph and an image on the cohousing.ca website based on an agreed-to format. The information will link to contact information and/or the member’s own website (whichever is preferred).
- A contact person at the CCN responds to general inquiries and provides interested people with information about cohousing and the communities in their local area.
- Have input into the direction and operation of the CCN at the annual general meeting.
