Growing up: The Social and Economic Implications of an Aging Population
The Canadian population is aging more rapidly than ever before, and that trend has widespread implications for a number of different aspects of Canada's society. This paper explores the possible impact of an aging population on health systems, labour supply, intergenerational relationships, and social and private income security programs. The analysis shows that a number of actions can be taken in the immediate future to alleviate pressures caused by this aging trend. Highlights include the creation of a seniors’ health account, the elimination of mandatory retirement, phased-in retirement options and increased personal retirement financial planning.
