Franchising with a Real Difference

Proud to be serving Canada's seniors.

There’s no bigger honour than serving those who helped make us who we are today.

 The Demographic: SENIORS

Canada’s population is changing fast. In 2011, there were five million people over the age of 65 and statistics show they are determined to remain in their homes for as long as possible. By the year 2031, this number will almost double and seniors will comprise 23% of Canada’s population. Join us in our mission to serve and inspire those who made us who we are today.
