Not too long ago moving into a ‘retirement home’ was seen as the end of an active, social lifestyle. Not so anymore. As more Canadians reach the milestone of 65+ their options for how they’d like to spend their ‘golden years’ are changing dramatically.
Retirement living options now include ‘seniors-only’ buildings that offer as many – or as few – services as are needed or wanted. Everything from meals, recreation facilities and services, social programmes and more can be included. Nursing and medical care can be accessed if resident’s health changes without a move to a ‘nursing home.’
Our client is a leader in providing refined living options for seniors across Canada. With close to 50 communities, they offer residents an array of options – from independent living, assisted living and memory care. As Canadians live longer the percentage of people living in some form of senior’s community will continue to increase at an incredible pace.
As Assistant Controller, the successful candidate will provide leadership to the property accounting team and build strong relationships across teams and functions, especially with operations.

With a diverse and collaborative team, a culture that encourages learning and development and an industry and company that are poised for continued growth, this is an exceptional opportunity. The ideal candidate possesses excellent interpersonal and communication skills, strong attention to detail, technical accounting skills, demonstrated team leadership experience, and an operational focus. A CPA, CA with 5+ years of experience is preferred.
