Conversations with Leaders – Exploring Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs)

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Conversations with Leaders

This live virtual event, facilitated by Compassionate Ottawa volunteer Mary Lou Kelley, will feature a conversation with Sue Garvey and Vince DePaul. Together they will discuss the fast-growing pan-Canadian Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs) movement and will spotlight Ottawa’s own Ambleside Oasis Program as an exemplary case. Oasis is an older adult-driven model of aging in place originally co-designed with older adults living in a Kingston apartment building, and has now spread to NORCs across Canada. Vince serves as co-Principal Investigator of the Oasis Project, while Sue plays a key role as an active volunteer in the Ottawa Oasis. Following the discussion, there will be time for questions and comments. Register here:
