Really! , Check out the price of the apartments? A senior receiving only OAS and GIS pensions could not afford these. Not built for seniors living at or below the cost of living.

exactly! when my fellow boomers who have pensions die and the prices come down there may be one for me, if I am still alive and still working!

We are in desparate need of AFFORABLE 2 bedroom housing units for seniors. Not high-end units that the average senior can't afford. What about a co-op. We have one in Sydney but the waiting list is very long. Regional Housing has 2 bedroom duplexes with an 8-10 year waiting list. Something needs to be done!
