About Us

The Schlegel Centre for Advancing Seniors Care is located at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario.

In 2012, Conestoga was awarded $800,000 over five years under the College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to establish the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR)/Schlegel Industrial Research Chair for Colleges (IRCC) in Seniors Care. This funding was augmented through the generous support of Schlegel Villages. 

In 2017, the CIHR/IRCC in Seniors Care was renewed for an additional five years, and was awarded $2,185,000.
