From 2019 – 2020, more than 50 cross-sector stakeholders and senior advisors participated in Seniors Housing Innovation Lab (SHL) workshops to rethink systems and services for senior renters in Metro Vancouver.
On Nov. 9, 2020, project leaders hosted a virtual, half-day Forum to present key ideas and invite stakeholders to carry ideas forward. Activities included senior renters sharing their experiences, presentation and discussion of two key ideas to address challenges for senior renters, and engagement to strengthen ideas and build partnerships.
More than 52 people participated, including sector stakeholders and service providers, seniors/elders, funders, and government representatives. Most were from Metro Vancouver. MLA Jennifer Whiteside contributed to opening remarks and discussion. Forum sharing was documented with virtual and traditional tools, and graphic recording.
