Lost Lake Cohousing

Lost Lake Cohousing is a newly forming cohousing in Nanaimo, British Columbia. We will be a multi-generational self managed strata / intentional community, welcoming members of all ages, and  designed to promote interaction among neighbours.

Join one of our zoom calls to learn more.

Members joining now will be influential in shaping the culture of our community and experience the excitement of seeing the community being built.  Workshops and events to build this community are under “Connect”.    

Our common denominator is that we all share a desire to live in a neighbourhood that fosters an active and supportive community lifestyle. We plan to share and enjoy many meals together in our common house. We are targeting a 2024 move in.

Lost Lake Cohousing attracts amazing people, active in the community and genuinely caring about each other. We will enjoy group hikes to nearby Lost Lake, bike rides, outdoor potlucks, and happy hours will provide an opportunity for making music, singing, laughing and storytelling. The kids love to play in our forests and climb trees. We are strengthened in our life together by living in community. Our visions and values guide us in the decisions we make and the time we spend together. Sustainability and reduced use of fossil fuels are priorities. We strive to live lightly on the land, possibly sharing electric vehicles and e-bikes.

We envision building 29 owned townhouses and apartments each with a full kitchen, living room, dining room, laundry, washrooms and patio, 2 guest suites, covered parking, playground, community gardens, fire pit, glamping pad, bike sheds, a trail connecting Lost Lake Road, Universal Place and Dewar Road, and a large common house with a living room, kitchen and large dining room and more.

Nanaimo is a city that is small enough to be easy to get around in, yet large enough to have a theatre, symphony, university and regional hospital and Vancouver is only a ferry ride away. And its one of the fastest growing communities in the country.
