Tour: Sandy Hill Housing Co-op Walk

  • Co-op Voisins 440 Wiggins Private Ottawa, ON, K1N 1A6 Canada (map)

Housing co-ops are diverse, affordable and vibrant places that are home to 250,000 Canadians. They bring people and communities together and are a part of the solution to Canada’s critical affordable housing shortage. But they are sometimes referred to in housing circles as a ‘best kept secret.’

We'll go behind the doors of housing co-ops and gain an insider’s view into this unique model of affordable, community-oriented housing. On this tour, we will visit two housing co-ops in Sandy Hill, Co-op Voisins and Conservation Co-op.  Learn about the award-winning design features of each and walk away with a better appreciation for this unique form of housing.

The walk will be led by Cynthia Mitchell, a co-op keener and a proud member of Co-op Voisins.

We’ll meet in the front walkway of Co-op Voisins (440 Wiggins Pvt, south of Mann Ave. east of Chapel Cres, near Robinson Field). After the tour there, we'll proceed to Conservation Co-op (140 Mann Ave).
