Making a difference in peoples' lives

Canada, like other countries, faces new challenges with the aging of our population. This complex issue matters to the well-being of today's older Canadians and those who will grow old tomorrow.

Building on 23 years of exemplary research activity, the Centre on Aging is well-positioned to address the challenges and opportunities this demographic shift offers individuals, families, communities and nations.
