Meet Us


We are an intentional community of like-minded adults creating an active and connected cohousing community.  Our model of living promotes healthy aging. We are a group committed to moving forward with the design and construction of a twenty-unit cohousing complex in the Sudbury area.

“We are a newly retired couple from Sudbury. 

We have three married children and enjoy spending time with our six wonderful grandchildren. We are avid outdoors people who enjoying canoeing, hiking, cycling, walking and snowshoeing. We look forward to continuing an active lifestyle as we move into cohousing.  We are also excited about enjoying the benefits of owning our own home and staying connected to neighbours where we interact and support each other.

We also like the idea of being involved in the operation and management of the cohousing property.”

“We met on the ice!!! At the Sudbury Curling Club that is, in 1987, married on July 1, 1988. We have 3 sons, a soon to be daughter in law, grand furbabies Ziggy & Fiona. We split our time between Sudbury, Manitoulin Island & Nokomis, Florida. We are excited to be involved at the grassroots level of Silver Birch Village.  Also, to have the opportunity to make a decision about the community that we will live in and to participate in the formation of a co-housing community here in Sudbury.”

Gilles and Janet


“We have been married for over 40 years and have lived our whole lives in Sudbury. We have been retired for the last few years and have found it easy to stay active in Sudbury walking, biking and cross country skiing. We have thought about cohousing for a long time believing it would be a great way to maintain our privacy and home ownership while being connected and supported in a caring community. We are excited about the great group of people who we are exploring this journey with us!’

Peter and Carmen


“Married for over 30 years, we have 3 children, two are living in Ottawa and the third lives in Norway. Carmen is a retired special education teacher. Peter is still working and is the owner of a local business called “For Seniors Only.”

We both enjoy travelling and our adventures have taken us to Jordan, Kyrgyzstan and other various European destinations. We hope to continue traveling once the world gets back on its feet. We both enjoy physical activities such as biking and hiking. Carmen’s interests include yoga, reading and music.  Peter always has a project on the go be it repairs or renovations at home or at the camp.

We hope to continue this active lifestyle well into our old age and are convinced that living in cohousing would enable us to do this.”

Chris and Ann


Married for 42 years, we have three daughters, two son-in-laws and one grand fur baby. Both of us are retired, Chris from MOL and Ann from Cambrian College.

We are “motion is lotion” active – walking, bike riding, kayaking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing. We love to travel and look forward to building and being part of an intentional community here in Sudbury.”
