For over 40 years ORCA has been committed to advocating for a strong and prosperous retirement community sector by lobbying government and other stakeholders on behalf of the interests of our members and the sector as a whole.
These advocacy efforts include keeping our members informed on issues relating to regulations and other relevant legislation and standards of care delivery and to promoting a collaborative environment with government and other stakeholders on matters affecting the sector. ORCA has developed strong linkages and relationships with many government bodies and community agencies, helping to ensure the retirement community voice is heard and respected.
ORCA believes in the important role retirement communities play in serving seniors’ housing needs and their desire for choice. ORCA also believes that the sector is poised for continued growth and for it to become an increasingly important partner in seniors housing and health care issues.
