The Baby Boomer Bulge is coming, and Canada is grappling with the implications. Just how concerned should we be about the associated impacts on health and social services? Delivering high-quality, effective, and sustainable services is both a top priority and one of most pressing challenges facing governments and businesses as they look to balance health care service demands and costs in the context of an aging population.

Our forthcoming report Future Care for Canadian Seniors: A Status Quo Forecast presents the results of research into future demand and supply of continuing care supports for Canadian seniors over the next 30 years. Join report co-authors Greg Hermus and Carole Stonebridge as they share the findings from this analysis, the pressure points that could occur in a status quo environment, and the areas where stakeholders should concentrate on to make progress.

Webinar Highlights

The status quo forecast indicates that by 2026, over 2.4 million Canadians age 65+ will require paid and unpaid continuing care supports—up 71 per cent from 2011. By 2046, this number will reach nearly 3.3 million.

During this 60 minute webinar, you will learn about:

  • The dramatically growing reliance on unpaid caregivers and volunteers to provide continuing care supports that could compound the perceived level of unmet or undermet needs of seniors.
  • The implications this forecast has for public spending, the labour market, and housing and institutional infrastructure.
  • The collaboration required among the diverse mix of public and private stakeholders that make up the continuing care sector to meet these needs in an efficient and sustainable manner.
