Document Highlights

Canada’s population is aging rapidly, creating more pressing transportation challenges and risks. Seniors need access to affordable and appropriate transportation options to meet their travel needs and support their health and quality of life.

While most seniors who drive are safe to do so, many stop due to deteriorating mental and/or physical capacity. Meeting the transportation needs of seniors, while managing safety and other risks, will require policies and strategies that address the challenges of driving cessation, improve and expand transportation options, and seek to transform the built environment.
