Financial Challenges of an Aging Population

Fairmont Château Laurier

Drawing Room

1 Rideau Street, Ottawa

Canada’s population is aging – fast.  Is Canada headed towards a demographic freight train that will derail balanced budgets, a sustainable health care system and dependable retirement income?  What are the trends that we should be most worried about, and what are the public policy fixes, if any, that can get Canada’s social programs back on track without stealing from future generations?

Please join Jack Mintz as The School of Public Policy and Cirano host a symposium that seeks to answer those questions.  The stakes are high.  Join us in a search for solutions.
