CORE data will allow you to benchmark yourself against your local competition, and against similar properties in similar markets around the province, and eventually, across Canada. The data will give you market and operational intelligence that you can use to find cost-savings, improve quality and create efficiencies.  It’s never before been possible to know whether your line by line costs are comparable with your other neighbourhood homes. Dealing with low occupancy? CORE will enable you to know when and how to re-position yourself to meet changing market demand.

CORE will enable you to evaluate the opportunities and performance of age-qualified housing in Ontario as an asset class. It will provide immediate access to data and information such as: rates, occupancy, NOI, market penetration, and communities in planning. CORE also yields detailed revenues and expenses by property type. CORE is the only source of accurate data to measure and evaluate financial performance of the seniors housing sector in Ontario.

Knowledge is power. CORE will enable you to more fully understand the growth and challenges of the sector at large and in your target market. When you know the line by line costs, or the occupancy rates or the trends in new construction that your clients are dealing with, you can use those insights to better present your products or services.

The data you provide will be encrypted and will not be shared with anyone. Confidential data is only reported in aggregate and only when it is combined with information from a minimum of three other comparable communities, who are owned by a minimum of two other companies. Data collection and reporting is being managed by ProMatura Group, a leading research firm in the age-qualified housing industry.
