Canadian seniors would be healthier, and the health care system more effective, if an affordable, supportive housing strategy was in place throughout the country. That concept was selected as the top priority by a majority of delegates at the National Health Leadership Conference, held in Vancouver June 12–13.

At the event — the largest national gathering of health system decision-makers in Canada — 53 per cent of attendees voted to prioritize the creation of alternatives to acute hospital care for Canada’s seniors.
