Op-Ed: Canada is getting older — why not make our communities wiser?
In this recent op-ed, CFN’s Scientific Director, Dr. John Muscedere, and AGE-WELL’s Scientific Director, Dr. Alex Mihailidis, share their perspective on the recently released 2021 census data. They emphasize the importance of aging wisely and explore how Canada might do that.
The recently released 2021 census data reveals Canada’s population is not just aging, it’s already aged. Baby boomers, who make up almost a quarter of Canada’s population, are now hurtling toward their mid-70s. That’s not a problem, as it is often made out to be — unless we refuse to age wisely.
