RTO/ERO Foundation

  • In 2011, RTO/ERO incorporated a Charitable Foundation to research ways to improve the lives of seniors as the grey tsunami approaches. In 2013, as its first project, RTO/ERO appointed Dr. Paula Rochon, geriatrician and vice-president of research at Toronto Women's College Hospital, to a research chair in geriatric medicine at the University of Toronto.

    Since the appointment of Dr. Rochon, the Foundation has focused on smaller research projects, and have committed over $150,000 in grants to hospitals and community organizations studying ways to improve the lives of seniors.
