Centre of Excellence
The Collaborative Learning Centre on Aging
The Collaborative Learning Centre on Aging (CLCA) is a partnership between the Université de Moncton and Shannex’s Faubourg du Mascaret community located on l’Université de Moncton campus.
The CLCA brings together stakeholders to better understand the many factors that contribute to improving the quality of life for seniors.
The partnership allows for training and research activities related to senior living to take place at Faubourg du Mascaret to benefit the residents. Faubourg du Mascaret becomes an inter-professional training platform for students from the Université de Moncton and the Centre de formation médicale du Nouveau-Brunswick which provides an environment conducive to conducting research on various topics related to seniors.
By raising stakeholder awareness regarding aging, long term care culture as well as care and services for seniors and their families, the CLCA is also developing strategic partnerships with other Francophone stakeholders in New Brunswick.
