Retirement Homes and Assisted Living in Canada – Demystifying the Law (Recording) 

Oct. 23, 2012
Online

Presented live via webconference by the CBA's National Elder Law Section

Seniors make up the fastest-growing age group in Canada and, more and more, older Canadians are opting for the convenience of retirement home or assisted living housing. These living arrangements raise a number of legal issues: How do these facilities differ from long term care homes? Are they tenancies? Regulated health facilities? Are the regulations substantially the same across Canada or are there considerable differences between jurisdictions? And what are the rights and obligations of the seniors who live there and the operators?

This informative session will answer these questions by examining the regulatory framework surrounding this type of accommodation and by providing lawyers with a practical checklist of the legal issues to look out for when representing older clients or their families. 

Speakers:
John Risk, Legal Counsel, Retirement Home Regulatory Authority, Toronto
Judith A. Wahl, Executive Director, Advocacy Centre for the Elderly, Toronto
