Cohousing is a well established housing option in Denmark of an intentional community of private homes with shared spaces. It was brought to North America by Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett. There are many completed projects in North America and Canada (especially in British Columbia) and 1 completed project in all of Ontario, Terra Firma in Ottawa from over 20 years ago. Cohousing is similar to the village or neighbourhoods of previous days where you know your neighbours. Neighbours interact and form a community that help each other.
