Flourishing through mutual support

Our mandate is to be a neighbourhood of strata-titled housing for people in the second half of life 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 nurture an innovative culture with lively connections to the larger society. While respecting personal privacy, we foster cooperation, social connection and affordability through design and through mutual support.

Our location is on the waterfront near the commercial centre of Sooke, BC (pop. ~10,000). Our 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. In 2016, we enhanced our green space with the acquisition of ¾ acre of woodland on Harbourside’s west boundary.
