Story ideas

Seniors are the fastest-growing age group in Canada. As our population shifts, so will the challenges and opportunities we face as a society. How will we adapt to this new reality? Here are some story ideas:

  • How stereotypes of aging can impact individual outlook and what to do about it.
  • It’s never too late – older adults who are reinventing themselves.
  • Exposing the gaps – how healthcare and social policies can help or hinder independence as we age.

Reach out to us if you’re looking for examples or ideas to help you with a story. We can also direct you to relevant research.
