About Us

The Brambles Housing Cooperative is an adult-oriented community of individuals who live cooperatively, embrace diversity, foster equality and ensure security and safety.



Our community is founded on equal opportunities for all, regardless of race, religious or non-religious beliefs, political affiliations, marital status, sexual orientation, gender or disability.


Together, we manage the physical, financial, legal and social aspects of our community by meeting regularly and making decisions by consensus.


Some people in our community are close friends, while others are friendly neighbours. Although we enjoy the mutual support and comraderie that our cooperative lifestyle offers, we also respect our neighbours' privacy and busy lives.
