Amisto Cohousing Society 

Communities in Development

Looking to be part of a thriving cohousing community but don’t know where to start? 

We specialize in identifying the best locations for cohousing and bringing together like-minded individuals to partner with us in creating thriving communities.

Vancouver Cohousing - Completed

Started and guided by us, completed in 2016 with the members' money, passion and time!

Vancouver Cohousing consists of 29 privately owned, fully equipped homes plus 2 rental units, in addition to a large and beautiful common house and outdoor common areas. This vibrant community is located on 33rd Avenue between Victoria Drive and Knight Street.

The homes range from studios to one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units – all with their own kitchens and laundry. The common house has an area of 6,500 sq ft. and includes a community kitchen, dining room, and lounge; activity rooms for children and teens; office areas; two guest rooms; a yoga studio; and rooftop gardens. As well, there are ground-level gardens, workshops, plus a courtyard and play area that encourage year-round social contact. All parking is underground.


Nanaimo - Lost Lake Cohousing

We purchased the site in the Lost Lake area of Nanaimo on June 30, 2022. We have a design for 29 units, ample common space.

We took this photo after our Getting it Built workshop in 2022.

We aim to start construction in 2024 and move in 2025. 


East Van

We are forming a group of member investors for East Van Cohousing and have a possible site on Duke Street in Vancouver. 

This photo was taken after the Getting it Built workshop we did at Vancouver Cohousing in February 2023. We have formed the group in April 2023 when we made our first land payments.

We aim to start construction in 2024 for a 2026 move in.



Cowichan Valley

We are working to establish a groups in Duncan and Chemainus with the hopes that we can launch a project there.  



Ponderosa In Vernon, BC

We are a cohousing group in Vernon, British Columbia, looking to create a community that prioritizes social connection, sustainable lifestyles, and inclusiveness.

Our aim is to design and develop a housing complex composed of affordable, quality-built homes while creating a community that balances shared spaces and amenities with individual ownership of units and privacy.
