Hello & Welcome

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


Our plan is to build 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.

This Just In... Guelph Possibilities

As a New Year dawns, we are focused on a possible new direction and a new (ad)venture:  GrassRoutes Cohousing and Speedvale Cohousing are meeting together to talk more about our shared vision for cohousing and possibly joining together.  We want to explore avenues for collaboration and growth.  

As emerging cohousing communities, each with several years of formation experience, both have weathered the  pandemic storm and are looking to move ahead in creating a built community in Guelph!
