The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (HUMA or the Committee) agreed on 4 May 2017 to undertake a study of how the federal government can support vulnerable seniors today while preparing for the diverse and growing seniors’ population of tomorrow.
At that time, the Committee also agreed that the study would be divided into three major themes as follows:
- How the government can improve income security for vulnerable seniors;
- How the government can improve the overall quality of life and well-being for seniors including community programming, social inclusivity, and social determinants of health; and
- How the government can improve access to housing for seniors, including aging in place and affordable and accessible housing.
This report summarizes the findings and recommendations of the study.
