The CoLiving team

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help Canadians live better, together through Cohousing and other forms of CoLiving. 

Kristopher, Mark and Duncan share a deep, personal commitment to address the challenges of isolation, loss of freedom and overwhelming cost on all levels that has resulted from the lack of human friendly living options for all age groups and the housing crisis in Canada. We can all live better, together!

Mark Powell

Senior Partner, Business Development

Coming from a family of architects, builders, property managers and teachers it is no surprise that Mark’s deep passion and drive for Cohousing is foremost. Also being a successful social entrepreneur marries well both aspects of what makes the CoLiving Canada team click - community and property. Mark has served as the Regional Vice President of Sales for the largest property management company in North America, founded and worked as the CEO of a B Corp global top 100 renewable energy company, and lead the fundraising as a board member at a Toronto drop in centre - Wychwood Open Door.

CoLiving Canada’s people first, property second Cohousing model keeps Mark busy. It's wonderful to help build community and help clients create the homes and neighbourhoods they design together, then get them built!
