Preparing for the Demographic Tsunami

Published on 19/07/2006

This commentary responds to the Conservatives’ search for its next top priority ideas.  The paper speaks to the need for investment in technical aids and personal supports, such as attendant care and homemaker assistance.  Canada’s rapidly aging population will soon swamp the health and community care systems unless there is careful planning now to meet the surge in demand for these supports.
