LaSalle College’s Managing Senior Citizens Homes program is designed to keep pace with the projected development and consolidation in the senior citizen housing network, a rapidly-growing industry.
According to the Institut de la statistique du Québec, the number of people above age 65 will double over the next 20 years. Consequently, the demand for retirement homes will increase significantly. Many large-scale projects are currently in the works and there is high demand for workers. According to recent statistics*, 1000 positions per year will be added within the next 20 years.
This program focuses on a career for the future, giving graduates access to management and supervisory roles in a people-focused environment that also emphasizes service quality.
