Westboro is a high-end neighbourhood in West Ottawa. The neighbourhood is bordered on the east by Island Park Drive and the west by Woodroffe Avenue. The Southern border stretches up to Carling Avenue while the northernmost point borders on the scenic Ottawa River which is home to kilometres of walking and cycling paths.
Westboro is a thriving community with a lively mix of single family homes, condominiums, and boutique retail shops. In the last few years, the announcement of several residential condominium projects are encouraging densification and promising to bring more residents to the area.
The neighbourhood boasts a concentration of outdoors and sport stores including Mountain Equipment Co-op, Lululemon, Bushtukah, The Expedition Shoppe and Trailhead. Boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops on Richmond Road have helped turn Westboro into a trendy neighbourhood featuring murals painted by local artists and the free annual Westfest music festival held every summer.

WHY PURCHASE A Founders Residence
FAVOURABLE DEMAND DEMOGRAPHICS
According to Statistics Canada, the 75-plus and 85-plus age cohorts in Canada are anticipated to be among the fastest growing age cohorts over the next 20 years, with the 85-plus expected to increase approximately 23%. The same cohort is expected to more than double the population in 2031.
With the rapid expansion of the seniors sector in Canada in the past decade, new developments have increasingly brought improvements to buildings, programs, and amenities at seniors housing facilities. Seniors (and their offspring) are well informed about the needs of the aging, the increasing number of choices available, and their freedom to select the lifestyle they want or need. Increasingly, seniors and families are requesting more services to enable residents to “age in place” and delay or avoid a transfer to another setting.
INCREASING LIFE EXPECTANCIES
Primarily as a result of advances in healthcare, Canada’s population is aging. The average life expectancy for Canadians increased to 80.4 years in 2005 from 77.8 years in 1991 according to Statistics Canada. The segment of the population age 65 years and older is expected to more than double in size by 2031 further exacerbating problems with respect to the availability of seniors congregate living and associated supportive living.
Traditionally, seniors have had limited choices when it comes to housing options. Our new standard of service allows residents to choose their required supportive services a la carte. These range from valet parking, grocery shopping, weekly cleaning, dining services, fitness and health management, to around the clock supervision.
