Perspectives on Growing Older in Canada: The 2022 NIA Ageing in Canada Survey

resource image

In less than 10 years, one-quarter of Canada’s population will be aged 65 years and older. Adequately understanding the circumstances and evolving needs of this aging population requires collecting regular and reliable data from older Canadians themselves. The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Environics Institute for Survey Research partnered on an annual survey of aging in Canada to track, over the next decade, how Canadians feel about both their experience and expectations of growing old in Canada. The survey captures older Canadians’ perspectives across three dimensions of aging: social well-being, financial security, and health and independence. It does so with 10 key indicators that when analyzed annually, will make it possible to measure progress — or setbacks — over time across these three dimensions of aging.
