Hi My Name is Jeannine and I am looking at going off the grid. I currently live in Toronto Canada and since you are in Canada this might be a good starting point for me. I am 48yrs old with no small children (grown & gone). I have visited all of Canada but BC. I love to cook and garden but most importantly love to learn & not scared of getting dirty. Please email with more details.

Hi Ewry One…
I am also located in Canada and just moved from BC to Eastern Canada/Maritimes as BC is insane on property prices…and also much remoted land here but still with reasonable distance to communtys /towns is easier to find here…
In BC for remoted living some one has to go over the mountains lakes and rivers …lol
Also here the people here are much more down to earth and and much more friendly as people in BC…
Anyway I will be offering free living on and off my land for same minded people in exchange for your time work and creativity… If you interested contact me and lets talk about it… alexandraslunce@yahoo.de

I am currently living in BC and wanting to build an off-grid sustainable community with other caring human beings. A place where we can support each other with our knowledge and skills, to live in harmony with our natural environment. Would love to find others to be apart of this community development. You can contact me at jeffryvos@yahoo.ca, thank you.

It doesn’t look like finding communities is easy. Anyone know of a better place to look other than this site? I’m looking to leave the business world and start my own life living off the land. This is the first place I’ve looked. Please help! I don’t fit here. Mentally, I can’t take much more of this rat race, work till you drop crap. I’m a good man, but these people are insane and I am often totally dysfunctional in it. They think I’m crazy and I can never hold down a job because I lose it after a while. It’s like a prison and emotional torture pretending to be like them just to get enough money to give it away to my landlord and the grocery stores.

I am writing a book called “The Off-Grid Home”
This is a 768 sq.ft. home that utilizes off grid mechanics (solar, wind, water and wood) to provide a couple with a reliable Off grid home that is affordable.
If you have any questions contact me at:

hi misty, i’m still in the city but i seek to live off the grid, i was wondering if you could give me some advice before i start this wonderful journey, i’m 26 sing and given up on trying to find that special person in my life, the proof are my couple of ex’s. I only seek the simple things in life now, but also somewhere to go where they WILL NOT “JUDGE OR CRITICIZE” one another. I have some skills and love learning about new things espcially is its about sustaining the off the grid life. besides my age and my will to learn, I have determination, and a strong work eithic, and believe that everyone has to pull there own weight one way or another it’s the only way to be fair and keep the peace, while moving forward to reach the goal of simplicity and peaceful living with my fellow man and nature.
