Our Aging Population
A sustained decline in mortality and fertility rates during the twentieth century has resulted in a shift towards older populations worldwide. Canada, while somewhat younger than the average among developed countries, still has an all-time high proportion of seniors. According to Statistics Canada, between 1981 and 2011, the number of Canadians increased significantly amongst the three age groups:
• For those aged 65 to 74, from 1.5 million (6% of the total population) to 2 million (8%)
• For those between 75 and 84, from 695,000 (2.8%) to 1.6 million (4.9%)
• For those aged 85 and older, from 196,000 (0.8%) to 492,000 (2%)
The number of seniors in all age groups is expected to continue to rise, and by 2041, seniors are projected to comprise nearly a quarter (24.5%) of the Canadian population, as compared to 14.8% today. Those aged 85 and over are expected to nearly triple to 5.8% of the total population by 2041. Read more here.
