"Like in many North-American cities, recent housing developments are now reaching the countryside. This urban sprawl is also accompanied by ""big box"" retailing developments making the use of car for shopping activities unavoidable and impacting negatively village local stores. Since scientific literature indicate the strong desire of elderly to age at home, in our case because of a desirable social and natural environment, but also the increasing challenge of driving for aging elders, this paper presents the results of a Master’s thesis investigating the consumption-related daily mobility of elderly households living in private houses at the outskirt of Quebec City's metropolitan territory in Canada. The research aims at: 1) understanding the ties between residential location and consumption patterns (places visited, outing habits, transportation modes, etc.) ; 2) exploring the relationship between mobility behaviors and social-spatial representations. For this purpose, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 36 elderly homeowners aged between 60 and 82 living in six exurban territories in Summer 2005. They were met in their homes; eight of them lived alone. ""Centrographic"" spatial analysis techniques as well as qualitative discourse analyses were performed to construct a typology of ""elderly action space"". Two types of consumption habits were identified: 1) elders who use the nearest commercial places to their home; 2) elders whose consumption behaviors are disseminated in the whole metro area. The two consumption patterns were influenced by the number of car in the household, but also by the inertia of ""auto-mobility"" habits. The ""local shoppers"" went out of their neighborhood only to consume products that were non-available locally. The ""hypermobile seniors"" traveled the metro area to reach out locations for physical and cultural activities not available locally. Some elders needed the help of family members or neighbors to complete their shopping. This being said, all elders considered their home and location as the best to live at theirs ages. Except for a few ""hypermobile"" elders considering the possibility of moving, the majority of elders wanted to age in their home even when confronted with the possibility of losing their driving license."
