Event at SERC: NSERC CCI Launch

February 7, 2011

SERC’s research team, our business partners in the NSERC CCI grant, the SERC advisory board, and Sheridan administration gathered at the Twisted Fork in Oakville, Ontario to celebrate the start of what will be a 5-year collaboration between SERC and area businesses to support aging well in place.

David Foot, noted economist and author of Boom, Bust & Echo spoke to the group about the importance of taking our aging population into account for businesses.
