Registration is Now Open for ASCHA/RDC Certificate Programs!

  • All ASCHA Members receive 25% off their tuition fee. Contact us to get your coupon code prior to registering.

We are excited to announce the 20th year of the Alberta Seniors Communities & Housing Association (ASCHA) and Red Deer College (RDC) Certificate Programs!  The programs have evolved so much.  Two decades ago, our courses were offered in a traditional classroom setting, which made it difficult for employees to access.  Now, all our programs have been converted to flexible online courses and expanded nationally.  Each course has been painstakingly vetted by industry experts to meet current needs and ensure graduates are prepared for leadership roles in seniors housing.

The Capital Development Hub

  • A new resource for ASCHA members presented in collaboration with Colliers Project Leaders.

The Capital Development Hub (CDH) is a practical tool that enables seniors housing providers to get the answers they need to their capital development questions.  All posts on the CDH are made by ASCHA members, and are moderated by our partners at Colliers Project Leaders and Alberta Seniors and Housing - Capital Initiatives Division.  It is a vital resource for members considering, currently involved with, or that have recently completed a capital initiative.  ASCHA members can register as CDH users to post and get in on the conversation. 

We look forward to seeing and moderating your questions!


The Charlie & Hazel Story

  • The characters in our public awareness campaign tackle various seniors housing related issues every week - follow their story!

Public awareness of the realities experienced by seniors searching for, living in, and transitioning through seniors housing is significantly lacking.  Navigating the systems can be confusing, frustrating and even scary because of terminology, negative media images and social constructs around aging and seniors communities.

Charlie and Hazel, two fictional characters not unlike many Albertan seniors, are here to share their experiences with us.  We have over two years of stories now, which have been shared through our Facebook Page and blog.

Readers can access the story in its entirety, or check out our Facebook or Blog pages every Friday for a new issue.  The first issue was published in April, 2016.

Together, we can all learn a bit more about seniors housing experiences and develop well-informed opinions of the various options available, so we can plan our own journeys or those of our loved ones.  The posts are interactive and we welcome feedback, insights and comments as the story progresses.

Be sure to share the story in your own communities and with friends!
