Every day we, at Revera, strive to uphold our vision – to celebrate the ageless spirit of people through service and innovation. We’re making great progress, in big ways and small, and today we are proud to announce we are taking another bold step toward fulfilling that promise.

We welcome Ms. Hazel McCallion, former 12-time Mayor of Mississauga, to Revera as our Chief Elder Officer. Many of you may have met Hazel and you will have seen first-hand her strength, determination, wisdom and wit. She is truly a force to be reckoned with, and the addition of her to our team in this unique, first-of-its-kind role will give us fresh, powerful insight into helping those we serve live their lives to the fullest.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Hazel’s story, she is Mississauga’s longest serving Mayor having held the office for 36 years. She first decided to commit her life to public service after a successful business career, and became Mayor of the city when she was in her sixties. She held the office until she decided to retire in 2014 at the age of 93. She is a former professional hockey player, is highly respected in business, academia and government, and is known for speaking her mind.  And that is what we are counting on.

As Chief Elder Officer, Hazel will not only work with us to shape our innovation agenda, she will speak with our residents and families, and will provide feedback to help us elevate the resident experience. She will be an advocate for 'Age is More', and plans on holding focus groups with residents and being available for speaking engagements at our communities where she can share her views on how to age well.

Acting as an advisor to leadership on a variety of topics, she will also share her thoughts about Revera’s strengths and areas of opportunity with our Board of Directors.

We are honoured to have Hazel McCallion as our Chief Elder Officer and we look forward to her insights, opinions and suggestions moving forward.
