The Village

Our innovative interprofessional and intergenerational educational community

The Village is a ground-breaking approach to educating the next generation of our country’s health and wellness professionals. Our proposed model currently does not exist anywhere in Canada.

A living model of class-leading health, human care and wellness education, The Village will foster a spirit of collaboration that will greatly enhance the delivery of community-based services while inspiring a new ideal for holistic care and healing – across the spectrum of life stages – that can be adopted by communities across the country.

This innovative educational community will seamlessly blend teaching, learning and living across generational boundaries to provide a continuum of care services while supporting leading edge applied research.

Our plan will create a learning and living village where innovation and new opportunities meet the highest standards of excellence in health and wellness education. This is about working together to invest, grow stronger and make a real difference – not only in our community, but across the country.
