Finding affordable housing for senior citizens can be a challenging task.

The local chapter of CARP (The Canadian Association or Retired Persons) together with Friendly to Seniors will host an information session on Nov. 17 at the Parkside Centre, 140 Durham St.

The session will take place between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Affordable housing for Older Adults in Greater Sudbury has been identified as a major concern in surveys undertaken by both CARP and Friendly to Seniors and is the reason for arranging this event which will feature input from the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

The organizations are expected to reveal the challenges faced in providing accommodation for this growing segment of the population but will reveal what other communities have done to address the issue.

Invitations have gone out to local builders, city councilors and staff concerned and the session will be open to the public and interested older adults.

There is no charge to attend and refreshments will be available.
