Inspired by an innovative French alternative to traditional living facilities for seniors, a Toronto group is working to create a made-in-Canada version called Baba Yaga Place.
Baba Yaga Place Toronto is an innovative model of living that will support community members to age within their own walls through mutual care and surrounded by like-minded companions, while pursuing both their personal interests and commitment to the broader community.
Early in April, Baba Yaga Place (BYP) members, Ryerson students and invited guests gathered in a classroom at Ryerson University to hear a presentation from seven graduate students who are completing their Master’s Degree in Planning. The students had undertaken, as their term project, to provide a report on housing, with a focus on the BYP priorities.
