About the Author

Gerald Hodge, one of Canada's foremost community and regional planners, is the author of Planning Canadian Communities, now in its fifth edition.


"Hodge makes a convincing case for recognizing the diversity of community contexts within which seniors reside and provides a helpful roadmap for community officials to allow them to take seriously the work of enhancing seniors' independence." Neil Hanlon, University of Northern British Columbia "Hodge is well acquainted with his subject matter and this manuscript makes an original and important contribution to the field. This is an important and timely work." Denise Cloutier-Fisher, University of Victoria
