our story

A community supported model of care for all ages

In 2008, His Highness the Aga Khan, spiritual leader of the world’s 15 million Ismaili Muslims, identified Generations as one of a number of global pilot initiatives designed to enhance quality of life. Borne of the recognition that the bonds of family and community are essential components of aging with dignity and joy, Generations was conceived as a multi-dimensional campus that could serve the varied needs of its residents in a place that feels like home.

With the launch of its Supportive and Long-Term Care Living Hub in September 2019, Generations seeks to foster an environment for quality aging for the most vulnerable and frail among the elderly.

guiding principles

Providing a high-quality of life for our aging population

Our aim is to go well beyond meeting provincial requirements and accreditation standards to provide an environment where seniors can flourish in all aspects of life.  To achieve this, every facet of our work will be guided by the following principles:

Dignified Aging in Place
We provide a high-quality of life for the aging population in a campus designed to meet the needs of seniors in varying stages of life.

Inter-Generational Interaction
By creating opportunities and spaces for the young and the aging to interact in a vibrant community campus, we enhance the lives of both.

Volunteerism
Volunteers are the strength of the Generations campus, collectively owning the well-being of our seniors, children and community.

Person-Centered Care
Through a dignified aging-in-place model, Generations provides seniors with a holistic approach to meet their emotional, medical, physical, spiritual, and social needs.

Best-in-Class Practices
Through our approach to person-centered care, we will be leaders in culturally appropriate programming, services and volunteer engagement.
