The Senior’s Housing Network continues to steer the Senior’s Share Housing project, which is designed to match seniors with complementary needs in both resident owned and head leased properties, towards stage two and implementation.

One of the initial features of the program will be a course of six week training and education sessions held at a seniors or community centre that will provide prospective  sharers to select co-residents.
