Event Description

I am organizing an event on the evening of Tuesday, September 11 that I think might be of interest to members of Village Vancouver who are interested in intentional community.

The event is about "mixer mortgages." Mixer mortgages are type of mortgage offered by Vancity credit union that make it easier for non-related people to buy a house together. I have no affiliation with Vancity (except for being a member), but since this housing option interests me, I have arranged for one of Vancity's mortgage managers (Ryan McKinley) to give a free talk and answer questions about how mixer mortgages work. Getting a mixer mortgage requires a legal co-ownership agreement, so I have also asked a lawyer that Vancity refers mixer mortgage clients to, to come talk and answer questions about co-ownership agreements. The lawyer is Mark Braeder of the Stewart-Aulinger firm.

More info about mixer mortgages is available here:

I am putting this event on through the Vancouver Cohousing Meetup group, which I organize ( Anyone who's interested in cohousing can join that group and sign up for the event that way. Or, if you would like to come but don't want to sign up for the meetup group, just send me an email, and I will let you know if space is available. Space is limited, so registration is required.


A loonie or toonie donation to help me cover the cost of the room rental would be appreciated, but is not required.
