ASCHA’s Inclusive Direction

What will ASCHA’s inclusive direction look like?
ASCHA’s Inclusive Direction Infographic
You may have heard about ASCHA’s inclusive direction, which is intended to broaden services for the Association’s current members – many of whom offer programs/services across the housing continuum (i.e. not just seniors housing).

The above graphic illustrates what the journey could look like and we welcome further discussion with our members and stakeholders on the ideas presented.

Federal Advocacy Tools for Members


ASCHA has prepared two documents outlining key priorities of our sector as it relates to Federal policy. 

We worked with the Alberta Network of Public Housing Agencies (ANPHA) and the Alberta Public Housing Administrators Association (APHAA) on one piece related specifically to affordable housing needs in Alberta.  The second piece focuses specifically on seniors housing issues and challenges candidates to uphold existing commitments, support more housing for seniors, and fund care in the community. Both advocacy tools have been sent out to all federal candidates running across Alberta, and we encourage our members to share these messages within your own communities to ensure housing needs are addressed pre and post-election
