A Canadian Roadmap for an Aging Society

Authors:Leah BartlettHeather Smith Fowler

There is a fundamental demographic shift underway across Canada, with older adults making up an increasingly large portion of our society. Population projections suggest that by 2031, nearly a quarter of Canadians will be aged 65 years and over.

This report explores the implications of that shift — it outlines opportunities and needs related to the growing older adult population in Canada and highlights areas of innovation and promising practice. The findings are based on a synthesis of evidence from many sources, including an environmental scan and literature review and structured interviews with 27 key informants from across Canada.

The project aims to create a Canadian ‘roadmap’ to inform the development of guidelines and standards that could enhance Canada’s aging society.
