For over fifty years, the Alberta Seniors & Community Housing Association (ASCHA) has been advocating on behalf of its members, who provide a variety of seniors housing options for Albertans. In June 2020, ASCHA adopted a more inclusive direction to represent the full continuum of housing our members offer – including community housing.
Our core roles are advocacy and member services. As a member-driven association, we act as a centre of excellence, of education, best practices and resources for our members, to assist housing providers with providing the very best supports to the Albertans they serve.
ASCHA currently represents approximately 75% of the seniors housing sector in Alberta, and is working with our existing members to better represent the needs of the province’s community housing organizations. Our members serve over 40,000 seniors across the province in independent, supportive and designated supportive living spaces. ASCHA proudly champions all sectors of seniors housing, including public, private and voluntary providers, as well as providers that offer public and non-profit community housing. Not only is ASCHA comprised of its members, we also engage associates and stakeholders that contribute to the enhancement of housing through their products and services.
