Some of our members have provided testimonials about their experiences with BCSLA. Listen to what our members have to say about how BCSLA has been a resource for them and the senior living industry in British Columbia.
Sienna Senior Living
“Our partnership with BCSLA is an integral part of our success and Senna’s living our creed day to day. With their ongoing educational support, combined with the Seal of Approval which ensures the highest levels of standards are achieved and maintained, and their functioning as a conduit between provincial government and industry partners makes this partnership incredibly valuable and necessary.” – Ken Kantman, Senior General Manager
“The BCSLA is an effective voice for the senior living industry in British Columbia. Through its advocacy work, the Association provides important policy direction to key stakeholders across the province and beyond. The Association plays a key role in advocating for our residents in several ways, including its ongoing stewardship of issues related to the delivery of care and services in private pay retirement communities like the ones we operate.” – Francis Gagnon, Senior Vice President, Retirement Living
Element Lifestyle Retirement Inc.
“Element Lifestyle Retirement is honored to be part of the BCSLA organization, together as an industry innovating and advocating for a better way of living for our retirees and seniors. Element values the opportunity to network and collaborate with our inspiring, dedicated industry leaders and professionals through educational seminars and other events, where we share knowledge, ideas, and challenges. It is highly rewarding and hope-inspiring that as a collective force, we are committed to overcoming the status quo and continuously driving lasting positive social impact. We do this not only through the provision of various retirement living models that serve the different preferences and needs of our seniors but also through our tireless, ongoing efforts to communicate with the government as thought and execution leaders about the practical implications of myriad policies and regulations which are intended to protect our seniors, but often end up having the effect of stifling our industry’s ability to make progress and offer choice. At BCSLA, we are here to collaborate with each other, and with the government. We do our best as a developer and operator, but large scale progress can only truly be made as a united industry, and that’s where BCSLA is an invaluable platform.” – Candy Ho, Director | Vice President, Brand Development & Communications
