HEALTHY CONNECTIONS provides an opportunity to learn about these, but more importantly, to learn about each other.
HEALTHY CONNECTIONS is funded by the Govt. of Canada and the Province of BC to improve the health of gender diverse British Columbians, with a special focus on gender wellness and sexual health. While we have many needs in common, how to meet those needs is unique in each community.

This is a multi-year, multi-partner initiative with the goal of developing an intentional community housing project.
An intentional community is a planned residential community designed from the start to have a high degree of social cohesion and teamwork. The members of an intentional community typically hold a common social, political, religious, or spiritual vision and often follow an alternative lifestyle. They typically share responsibilities and resources.
Intentional communities include collective households, cohousing communities, co-living, ecovillages, and housing cooperatives. (wikipedia)
This project is at the INVESTIGATE stage where information is being collected about options, resources and partnerships.
This 2 day workshop is part of step one – investigate.
