The ASCHA Energy Program
Powered By 8760:Energy

The ASCHA Energy Program offers group energy procurement benefits to all of our members, associate members and clients.  ASCHA members have reported substantial cost savings since signing-on to the program, reallocating dollars back into important services for the seniors they serve.  If you are not yet registered with the ASCHA Energy Program and would like more information on how your site(s) could join those who have reported 10 million dollars in collective savings as program participants, be sure to contact Ken Klassen at 8760:Energy at 1.888.988.8760.

2014-2017 Strategic Direction and Plan

After a great deal of member consultation, ASCHA has developed its 2014-2017 Strategic Direction and Plan.  These documents will direct the association’s work over the next three years, and outline three major priorities: 1)  Collaborative Government & Industry Approach; 2) Member Sustainability; and 3) Forward-Thinking Governance Structure.  The Strategic Plan outlines the short and long term strategies to help ASCHA attain the objectives of its new direction.  As always, ASCHA remains flexible and responsive to changes in our industry and understands that priorities may shift in response.

Housing Common Terminology

In an effort to increase understanding of the industry, the Alberta Senior Citizens’ Housing Association (ASCHA) has developed a Common Terminology document that outlines the mainstream housing types within the seniors’ housing industry.  ASCHA’s goal has always been to ensure effective communication between the residents and their families, our members, the Government of Alberta, Alberta Health Services, the public and all other stakeholders involved in seniors’ Housing in Alberta.  We are confident that by implementing the use of Common Terminology, we will arrive at a greater understanding regarding the different elements of the Continuing Care System and we will all be able to speak clearly to the public and each other with one voice.


A New Approach to Property Taxes in Seniors Housing and Continuing Care

The Seniors Housing Society of Alberta (SHSA) and the Alberta Senior Citizens Housing Association (ASCHA) have released a summary document outlining a new approach to the taxation of seniors housing and continuing care sites for consideration during the MGA Review process. A full version of the report is available upon request by emailing

Membership New/Emerging Issues Submission Form

ASCHA’s advocacy efforts need to be flexible and fast moving in order to address new and/or emerging member issues in a timely manner. Members have requested a process to formally raise issues that have not been identified priorities by the membership but that could have an impact on the industry in the future. This process will allow members to formally raise new and/or emerging issues and their recommendations to ASCHA.
