Regular Members include public not-for-profit, voluntary not-for-profit, and private for-profit seniors living operators. Our association is very unique in this regard. We are the only seniors living association in North America that represents all sectors! While fulfilling the needs of each sector can sometimes be challenging, ASCHA firmly believes that our strength comes from our common services to Alberta’s seniors. We all are in this industry because we choose to serve Alberta’s seniors. As ASCHA’s first value states;
“We support systems focused on maintaining the quality of life of seniors, the enhancement of their well-being and the delivery of diverse services focused on choice”.
By being inclusive of the three sectors, we are supporting all operators that provide the whole spectrum of living options with an integrated perspective. Alberta is also the only province in Canada that provides capital grants for affordable housing to all sectors. The government has repeatedly told us they prefer to work with one inclusive group.
