Flourishing through mutual support

Our mandate is to build a neighbourhood of strata-titled housing for seniors that is affordable, environmentally friendly, and socially/culturally supportive, allowing people to flourish through mutual support as they age in place and in community.

Our mission is to be a sustainable senior cohousing homeowner community that promotes healthy aging in place. The physical structures as well as the social fabric of our community will nurture an innovative culture with lively connections to the larger society. While respecting personal privacy, we will foster cooperation, social connection and affordability through design and through mutual support.

Who we are - active, energetic people in the second half of life. We are starting now before we’re ‘ready for the home’ to develop senior cohousing for ourselves and to welcome others who share our vision and values.

Our Project - we have formed a development company, secured a waterfront site at 6669 Horne Road in Sooke, and signed a contract with Cohousing Development Consulting to provide project management services to help us develop our project.

Our approximately 2 acre site is a five-minute walk to groceries, concerts at the church, dances at the Community Hall, coffee shops, restaurants, the post office, the bus stop, and a level block from beautiful Ed Macgregor Park. There is space for residents’ boats at our dock.

Two of our members regularly facilitate a two-day Royal Roads University course Aging Well in Community. Registration for the course is required to become an equity member of Harbourside and also benefits those in the broader community.
