NRC Aging in Place – Expert by Experience (EBE) Project Advisor Recruitment

Older adults across the country agree that they want to keep living in their own homes for as long as possible—safely and injury free. 

In 2020, the Government of Canada announced the new Aging in Place Challenge Program led by the National Research Council of Canada. Researchers from the NRC are partnering with like-minded private, public, academic and other research organizations to develop technological breakthroughs to help older adults and their caregivers to live in their homes and communities of choice.

Clubhouse on a Firm Foundation

Renovation of a century-old building is not for the faint-hearted, especially when the building has survived a century to become an architectural landmark in Ottawa, a monument to a way of life and a gathering place for generations of Ottawa families and friends.

The vision for the Clubhouse restoration was to bring new life to a grand old building, to extend its life span and make it a year-round place for community events. In fact, the project so far has resembled more of a rescue mission.
