The Canadian Cohousing Network (CCN) was formed in 1992 in British Columbia, Canada.
It is a registered non-profit organization that promotes the creation of cohousing communities as a model for sustainable development by raising public awareness about cohousing and by bringing people together to form communities. The most valuable function of the CCN is making connections with people who are interested in living in a cohousing community. CCN links individuals and cohousing groups together to share resources and make the process of creating a community easier and more economical.
The purpose of the CCN is to:
- promote and facilitate the development of cohousing communities across Canada;
- foster public, government, and building professions’ awareness about the nature and benefits of cohousing;
- provide educational services for creating cohousing communities;
- enable networking opportunities for those interested in cohousing;
- establish standards for cohousing development including accreditation of cohousing professionals;
- maintain a cohousing resource directory; and provide support services to groups involved in creating cohousing communities.
The Society operates without object of gain for its members or directors. Any profits or other accretions will only be used in promoting its objectives. These provisions are unalterable.

Ralph and Dawna Monette started this family business in 1983 in Carleton Place. The original product catalog featured about 20 items for rent! In 1998 they retired from the business after equipping their sons to lead the operation. That same year a second location opened in Perth, in 2001 Smith Falls, and in 2007 in Stittsville.
That’s our history in a nutshell. You won’t hear much more talk about our history because we would rather look ahead than behind–the future is a whole lot more exciting!
Terry and Mark Monette are still actively involved with the business, and are proud of the business relationship shared. However they acknowledge their unity as brothers / business partners–and overall business success–is evidence of blessings from God.
