Because of the incredible response to this project, To Thrive Together is taking the names of those who might wish to purchase a home in the Bloomingdale Community. We opted for the term ‘interest list’ over the term ‘waiting list’ because the latter implies a first-come-first-served priority. All those on the interest list will all be given early notification of when houses become available for sale before that information goes public.

Home Construction Regulatory Authority Certification      To build and sell a new home in Ontario, we require HCRA certification. Legally we cannot accept even a $1 deposit beforehand. The first stage of our application has been submitted and evaluated. Some courses will be required for the final stage, and both Bob and Aaron, on the Board of Directors, have already registered. Because of staffing shortages at HCRA and the January pandemic lockdown, it is very uncertain when the necessary certification will be issued. Once the certification is complete and all the zoning approvals met, we can begin accepting deposits on homes. We estimate June 2022.

If you are interested in potentially purchasing a home in the To Thrive Together Bloomingdale Community, we encourage you to place your name the ‘Interest List’. There is no cost to do so. Note, there will be no bidding wars; the price will be the price. Those on the list will be given early notification of when homes become available for sale and given priority registration for the associated workshops. Email us at and ask to have your name added.
