Canada, like many other Western countries, is grappling with the issue of a rapidly growing older adults’ population. Statistics Canada project that the number of seniors in Canada is expected to be higher than that of children below fourteen years by the year 2021, with the number rising to ten million by the year 2036. In a Senior Housing Survey that was conducted by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Ontario has a total of 62,633 senior homes, an increment of 2.4 percent from last year’s figure. Analysts are of the opinion that the increment is not good enough. There is a great shortage of homes for older adults, with a prediction that the problem may escalate if no tangible action is taken. In its analysis of the Canadian Senior Housing Dilemma, the DBRS report indicated that housing is a national crisis affecting all Canadians regardless of age, but seniors experience greater problems since they tend to have specific housing needs. CHMC 2019 report observed that prices for senior care facilities are increasing in almost every province, a development which is attributed to the growing demand for senior care communities.
However, it is not all doom and gloom as there are industry players who are working hard and diligently to ensure that there are affordable housing for seniors. At the forefront is Wiarton Retirement Residence, a family owned and operated senior-living home in a rural community. Wiarton Retirement Residence has opened a renovated retirement residence in Bruce County Peninsula. According to Donna Sauve, a Partner at Wiarton Retirement Residence, “the solution to the housing crisis for seniors is providing affordable retirement options for fixed income seniors and seniors living in expensive suburban neighborhoods.”
Wiarton Retirement Residence offers affordable and quality retirement living. What sets us apart from other retirement communities is the affordable retirement pricing and homelike atmosphere. With the increased cost of senior living and the fact that seniors live on a fixed income after retirement, Donna says that their retirement residence is a viable option, one that will provide comfort and satisfaction to the older adults.
“This retirement home will be different from your typical residence. If you have ever watched an episode of the Golden Girls or seen the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, you will understand the warm, loving and supportive environment that we offer”, says Donna. A comfortable home-like atmosphere, nestled in a picturesque residential neighbourhood with private accommodations that includes a stunning view of Georgian Bay. The residents will enjoy the natural beauty of the area as well as experience the small-town feeling that the South Bruce Peninsula has to offer.
Our tagline is “The Way Home….Feels” because we want our residents to feel that all they have done is moved from one comforting home to another without the added stress of having to worry about meal planning, upkeep and home maintenance. Donna Sauve is inviting seniors or those supporting seniors to come visit their residence and they are currently accepting applications.

With projections indicating an increase in the number of fixed-income seniors, the Wiarton Retirement Residence could not have come at a better time according to Donna.“Our business is here to provide safety nets for the seniors as well as give hope to people in Ontario—research indicates that close to seventy percent of Ontario residents are worried that they won’t have enough money to retire on. We are here to alleviate this fear by ensuring that seniors meet their living needs. We are striving to fill the gap through offering not just affordable retirement living but also in a naturally occurring and growing retirement community,” concluded Donna, inviting seniors to make the trip to Wiarton for a personalized tour.
