Optimal Health and Wellness

Health and wellness are the cornerstones of positive and active aging in Canada. Canadian seniors deserve equitable access to healthcare regardless of locale or income.

Our health system must invest in preventive care and well-being initiatives emphasizing nutrition, movement, sleep, mental health, and social activity in addition to acute and chronic care services.

It is critical that Canada has adequate numbers of healthcare professionals with the specific training required to meet the needs of an aging population. This staffing is far below what Canada currently needs, and there is no established pathway for the age shift.
