Only 1.2% of Canadians live in retirement communities.
With traditional advertising, up to 99% of your dollars are wasted on the wrong audience.
Most ads are brief interruptions that get ignored.
Yet to influence prospects on an important decision like moving, you need to engage them—meaningfully.
Prospects need full confidence to make a move, completely assured they’re making a good decision.
This can’t be achieved through your own website, traditional marketing initiatives, or mere word-of-mouth.
Your market is narrow—roughly only 1.2% of the Canadian population. This means 99% of typical advertising doesn’t reach your target audience—prospects and their circle of influencers researching and looking for the best retirement community.
We, meanwhile, reach almost 100% of it. Virtually every prospect that visits ComfortLife.ca is actively researching retirement living and care options. And, if a prospect or family member is looking for a retirement community, they almost certainly use ComfortLife.ca.

Typical or traditional ads are generally ineffective. They interrupt viewers, lack context, and are often ignored. We, meanwhile, reach people when they’re maximally receptive to your message—when they’re actively researching retirement living options.
When people come to Comfort Life, they’re eager to hear your story. Since your message is relevant to them, seen as content rather than an advertisement, and you’re given lots of space to engage them (2,000 words of structured content), your information aids prospects and their influencers, regardless of where they’re located, in the task of choosing the right community.
Choosing and moving into a retirement community requires more than paid ads—it requires input from providers like you, close friends and family, residents, and experts. We provide everything your prospects need.
On Comfort Life, people research you on Canada’s most comprehensive retirement-choice platform—one trusted by millions of Canadians for nearly 20 years. When seniors, their adult children, grandchildren, or friends see you on Comfort Life, it makes them much more comfortable moving. Your community and brand will receive a “halo effect” of confidence you can’t get from traditional advertising.
In short, Comfort Life cuts through the marketing clutter and delivers your story to engaged people on an authoritative platform. This makes us the most effective way to market and drive sales.
Thousands of people from your market spend time researching retirement living options on ComfortLife.ca This offers you a uniquely efficient way to make more families aware—and more deeply aware—of your lifestyle options.
Families seeing you on our platform builds your brand equity. Over time, more of them will consider you based on your brand alone.
Building awareness is sufficient to market most products and services. But retirement living is different: a number of decision makers are involved, each spending a lot of time and energy studying their options. They research, compare options, read reviews, and get a better understanding of the fit for them.
Your challenge isn’t merely to make people aware of your community, but for them to develop a rich understanding of it. Comfort Life gives you the audience, context, and space to share your full story.
As a retirement community marketer, you want to generate inquiries, tours, and ultimately, move-ins. And Comfort Life certainly does that for you.
For example, a prospect might click directly from ComfortLife.ca to your website, contact you, and then request a tour. Or, a family might first learn about you through word-of-mouth, or your sign, and research you more in-depth through Comfort Life (and other resources), before requesting a tour.
Each member community is a partner. We're interested in relationships that are both sustainable and based on measurable results. Your performance is measured in concrete metrics, reported to you in real time, and we guarantee results. Book a discovery call to learn more about our money-back guarantee.Book a discovery call
