Assisted Living: Past, Present and Future Legal Trends in Canada

This project provided a starting point to engage in a national conversation about a critical “middle option” of health / housing in Canada. This middle option, called “supportive housing / assisted living” in this project, lies at the centre of a seniors’ housing continuum. This project was made possible by funding from the Good Samaritan Society of Canada and with the sustaining financial support from the Law Foundation of British Columbia and the Ministry of the Attorney General for British Columbia.
