Seniors are one of the fastest growing groups in Canadian society. Currently about 13% of Canadians are aged 65 and over. By 2041, this age group will make up an estimated 23% of the population. This dramatic increase has resulted in a host of legal issues related to aging. Equally important are the interconnected social, economic, and health needs of older persons and their families.
