Hello & Welcome

Waterloo Region Cohousing Project (WRCP) is a group of people creating a sustainable cohousing community in the Waterloo Region in Ontario, Canada.

 

Our plan is to build 20-24 tightly clustered homes and a Common House, combining the advantages of privacy with shared common facilities. It will include parking on the periphery and shared outdoor spaces, resources, and activities, including meals and celebrations.
