Join us for a one-day research symposium to discuss the future of work and housing in Atlantic Canada in light of the aging of its population.
Registrations will be accepted until November 14, 2017: https://housingandwork.eventbrite.ca. Lunch & refreshment breaks are included.
The day presents a platform for stakeholders to share their thoughts on how changing age distribution of population is affecting work and housing in Nova Scotia, what challenges are emerging for policy makers and communities, and how these challenges may be addressed.
Similar events are planned in NB, PEI and NL. Based on the proceedings of these events, ARGEIAD will prepare a report which will be made available to our stakeholders.
