cover infographic sheltersIn 2022, Sage Seniors Association and CNPEA co-developed an infographic about shelters and emergency accommodations for older adults. This document offers an overview of existing services, where they are located and how they can be reached. It also highlights a striking gap in availability. There are currently only 13 sheltering services that are specifically for older adults in Canada. They are spread out across five provinces and provide varying levels of accessibility depending of factors such as disability, pet ownership, minimum age, etc. As the Canadian population ages and rates of family violence and gender-based violence continue to rise, increasing the number of emergency shelters, transition houses, and other emergency accommodations for older people is becoming a pressing issue.
