Active & Healthy Senior Living (Retirement Homes) Operations

Certificate of Completion

The Canadian retirement home industry is expected to double in the next five years, as we experience a surge in baby boomers aging. This rapid expansion is creating an industry-wide need for qualified staff and retirement home managers.

Students will spend up to 7.5 hours per week on course materials, allowing for the continuation of full-time careers.

Graduates of this program will be prepared for an operations leadership role within a retirement home residence.  Humber’s Active & Healthy Senior Living Operations (Retirement Home Management) program prepares you for an industry role through:

  • A Guided Mentorship Program that allows students to link academic learning to real industry experiences through interactions with industry experts
  • Our instructors and industry partners, all current industry professionals, ensuring that content is current and relevant
