The Atlantic Seniors Housing Research Alliance (ASHRA) represents all of the groups involved in the research project entitled, Projecting the Housing Needs of Aging Atlantic Canadians. ASHRA is a diverse membership that consists of individual seniors; seniors and other community-based oganizations; service providers; government departments; planners, builders, and developers; and academic researchers.
This research project was based at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. From 2005 to 2009, the research examined the housing needs and choices, both existing and emerging, of our aging population, then in 2010-2011, developed policy recommendations on how these needs can be better met in the future.
Our website provides information and reports from each of the four phases of our research, and is designed, so that you can use the results. We hope you visit often.
