HOW TO STAY CONNECTED
Intentional Neighbourhood Association
We need community more now than ever. Being a part of a community makes our lives fuller, happier and easier. Would you like to know your neighbours and be connected through regular activities and events? Then an Intentional Neighbourhood Association (INA) might be right for you!
What does being a part of an INA mean? It means that you will be a valued and involved member of an intentional neighbourhood. You will be involved in dinner parties, clubs, events and have a place at the table for community meetings.
The Four Yeses at the Heart of an Intentional Neighbourhood Association
1. It’s All About The Food
Eating together is the secret sauce of community. When we enjoy meals with people, we like them more and they like us more.
2. The TMP Factor
Being part of an intentional neighbourhood is about being involved – Time, Money and Participation.
3. The Three Ups
Show up, Speak Up and Listen Up. In Thriving neighbourhoods, people speak their truth kindly and listen hard to their neighbours.
4. Gift Mindedness
Our neighbourhood will be stronger as we share our gifts and appreciated the gifts of others.

What is Cohousing?
Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighbourhoods that combine extensive common facilities with private homes to create strong and successful housing developments. Most of these communities are organized as townhouse or condominium developments with a homeowners association; a few are organized as cooperatives. Cohousing is not a financial or legal model, but rather a descriptive term that shows the intent of these developments to cultivate a strong sense of community through extensive common facilities and active collaboration of the residents.
