45 years together

This year, we’re celebrating our 45th anniversary!


We’re well aware that November is still a long way off, but what do you expect? We’re proud to have reached this new milestone. Little did we know five years ago, as we celebrated CAH’s 40th anniversary, that a global health crisis was just around the corner! But here we are, safe and sound on the other side of the pandemic. More convinced than ever of the viability of the CAH model: affordable housing with support services, homecare in the community, help in navigating the healthcare system, a support program for francophones living with dementia in the community and their caregivers, and an centre for active living to stay connected and break the isolation while speaking French.

Here are two ways to recognize CAH’s impact on the Greater Toronto Francophone community.

1. Become a sponsor/donor of our November 16 event

For 45 years, CAH has been the leading provider of French-language services to francophone seniors in the Greater Toronto Area. We are the only officially designated francophone organization in this sector. CAH is a key partner in providing French-language services to seniors. We provide affordable housing and community support services to help seniors age safely in their own homes. Our organization is a key player in creating a smoother path through the French-language health, housing and social services systems.

CAH is committed to active aging, the preservation of autonomy, intergenerational connectivity and the celebration of diversity in a truly inclusive setting. Older people want to be in the driver’s seat of their own life and care, as much as possible. They want to live life to the full, to be recognized and listened to, and to work with their preferred partners in French. They can rely CAH, thanks to your involvement.

You can support CAH’s 45th anniversary initiatives today.

FUN FACT ABOUT OUR 40th! We know how to entertain! Take a look at the souvenir album of our CAH 40th anniversary cocktail party (five years already!). In the form of a special trip aboard AIR CAH, passengers received a 1st class boarding pass for Flight CAH40. The charming stewardess Nathalie Nadon welcomed everyone and humorously explained the flight instructions.
