Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighbourhoods that combine extensive common facilities with private homes to create strong and successful housing developments. 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.
Prairie Sky Cohousing
Did you know that for 16 year Prairie Sky Cohousing, Calgary’s original cohousing project, has been quietly creating an oasis of neighbourliness on the corner of 30 Ave NE and Edmonton Trail? Also, the best gardens on Edmonton Trail!
The Munro Cohousing Project
Cohousing Connections is working with a team of local professionals to explore the appetite for a cohousing project at 502, 508, 512 -17 Ave NE.
What an amazing location! Across from an amazing park, close to a wonderful off-leash area, bike paths, groceries, recreation center, schools, pubs and the highway out of town! The image above is from previous work done on the site and is shared as inspiration! The founding group of cohousing owners will participate in the design of this new project.

This has been such a big city-wide hit! Here are the next few weeks of Window Walk Ideas!
A community-wide personal distancing/socially connected scavenger hunt!
We need your input! Please submit a question and answer for us to include on the scavenger hunt. Some simple examples:
- How many houses are for sale on 25th Ave?
- How many benches at Victory Park playground?
- How many garden beds in the community garden?
*A big THANK YOU to a thoughtful member of the community, Sarah Manske, for the Scavenger Hunt idea!
Alberta has one of the highest testing rates in the world. In addition to completing as many tests as possible, we are being purposeful in our testing in order to:
- diagnose and treat individuals at greatest risk
- trace the spread of the virus so we can identify steps to limit the spread
- determine how well our public health measures are working.
If you have symptoms
If you are experiencing mild symptoms – cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat:
If you experience or see someone experiencing severe symptoms of COVID-19, including difficulty breathing, severe chest pain, feelings of confusion or loss of consciousness, call 911 immediately.
Who is being tested
Alberta is testing those at greatest risk of severe illness, including anyone in hospital with a respiratory illness.
Testing is being offered to symptomatic individuals (i.e. cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat or shortness of breath) who:
- live in continuing care facilities, group homes or other similar congregate settings
- are aged 65 years or older
- live with someone aged 65 years or older
- live in the Calgary zone
Testing is being offered to symptomatic individuals (i.e. cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat or shortness of breath) in the following roles:
- healthcare workers
- group home workers and shelter workers
- first responders, including firefighters and EMS
- people involved in COVID-19 enforcement, including police, peace officers, bylaw officers, environmental health officers, and fish and wildlife officers
- correctional facility staff, working in either a provincial or federal facility
- essential service workers
As the situation evolves, Alberta’s testing approach and priorities will adjust according to need and direction from the chief medical officer of health.
To determine if you need to be tested and next steps, complete the COVID-19 self-assessment for Albertans or the COVID-10 self-assessment for healthcare and shelter workers, enforcement personnel and first responders.
