We speak up on issues that affect Canadians – at any age
Older adults are the fastest-growing age group in Canada. Together with our members and partners, we advocate for critical policy improvements to address urgent needs now and create a more secure and compassionate future for everyone.
Older Canadians are the fastest-growing segment of our population, but gaps in healthcare and social policies are creating barriers to seniors’ independence and inclusion. A coordinated National Seniors Strategy, with dedicated funding and accountable goals, will ensure we meet the evolving needs of seniors.
Canada’s population is aging. In 2012, almost one in seven Canadians was a senior. Now the number is more than one in six. By 2030, that will jump to nearly one in four. Our health care system (and social systems) needs to re-think how to address the rising needs of this huge demographic.
Responsible use of resources, conservation, protecting our air, land and water — improving in all areas is critical to a sustainable future.
