Why does Canada, one of the wealthiest, most stable countries in the world, with universal healthcare and a social safety net, fail so profoundly in dementia care? We have a National Dementia Strategy.  But where are we on our progress towards implementing that strategy?

At CanAge, we wanted to get answers.  We wanted to find out where Canada is on the path to making this country dementia-inclusive.  We wanted answers for the individuals, caregivers and social service sector workers who are increasingly raising their voices in desperation.

This report, the first of its kind in Canada, benchmarks the progress made in each province and territory to prepare for the rapidly growing rate of dementia the data show is looming on the horizon. It also looks at our National Dementia Strategy, and the role the federal government has to play in stewarding, and funding, a collaborative approach to this important work across the country.

We need to do better. We can do better.

Stigma and fear is an overarching problem which blocks progress at every level.
When people are too afraid to talk about dementia, learn about associated risk factors, and seek support – everything worsens.
