The Collective Housing Society is a non-profit society providing education, resources, advocacy and networking in support of Greater Vancouver's Collective Housing movement.
WHAT IS COLLECTIVE HOUSING?
Collective Housing is an affordable housing model that utilizes existing dwellings, predominantly single-family homes. This movement is on the spectrum of medium to long-term shared living, where its residents – ranging from families with children to single adults – choose to intentionally share personal living space and daily lives. This often includes food and meals, common values, decision-making and household responsibilities. Where shared housing is about sharing a house, Collective Housing focuses on building a home.
