Maintaining Mental Health in A Leadership Role 

As the Mental Health Commission of Canada has highlighted, “one in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness every year, with a cost of well over $50 billion to our economy.” In the workplace, we all have a responsibility to create supportive and psychologically safe environments, address stigma and know how to support our team members. But often leaders do not apply the same care to their own mental health and the unique issues and pressures that impact those in leadership roles. This session will look at ways we can ensure we’re supporting ourselves while supporting our teams and organizations.

Steve Ashton: CPHR, Vice President, People & Organization Development, IWK Health Centre (Nova Scotia)

Aging in Place & Human Rights

Canadians are living longer, and one consequence is that we can expect to see an increasing number of ever-older residents among condominium populations*.  This panel discussion will explore many aspects of this likely change to building demographics.  

  • What are the implications for these residents, for condominium corporations, other residents, boards, managers and other stakeholders? 

  • Do older residents have unique interests, requirements, and priorities? 

  • Will these be in conflict with those of younger residents? 

  • Will increasing populations of older residents require rethinking condominium design priorities for new developments, and rehab priorities for older buildings?

*According to the Conference Board of Canada, in 1961, the average Canadian could expect to live to the age of 71. In 2022, the average Canadian life expectancy according to Statistics Canada is 81.3 years with women (84.1) outliving men (79.8) by about 4 years.
