Issue #27: Housing Affordability

Some Canadian seniors do not have adequate, affordable, and accessible housing options to allow them to age in place. Housing affordability is particularly challenging in urban centres or where housing stock is limited.

Recommendation #94: Housing Innovation for Seniors

Support innovative aging in place models such as Homeshare projects, co-housing solutions, naturally occurring retirement communities (NORCs), cooperative housing models, and integrated low-income or affordable seniors’ housing.

Recommendation #95: Homelessness or Risk of Homelessness

Create appropriate programs including accessible transitional and shelter options for older adults who find themselves precariously housed, at risk of homelessness, or homeless. Provide protection for seniors in assisted living or long-term care residences during periods of extended hospitalization to ensure they don’t lose their housing.
