St. Georges also has a rich history. We officially opened on October 17, 1992, and were the first bilingual co-op established in North America. We take pride in our bilingual and inclusive culture.
As a mixed income co-op, St. Georges fosters, promotes and maintains a respectful and diverse community. Our residents include families (including many single parent families), new immigrants, people living with disabilities, seniors, students and young professionals. Many of our residents have raised their children here, and founding members of the Co-op are still living in St. Georges today. We believe that our diversity makes us stronger.
We are pleased to be the closest co-op to the University of Ottawa, which is located just around the corner from our quiet one way street. Many of our residents are students of the University, whether they be parents completing a degree as they raise their families, kids who have grown up in the Co-op, or new students who recently moved to the area. Some of our residents also work for the University.
