Senior's Health Care Round Table

How to leverage the next Health Accord to deliver better health care for Canada's seniors

Tuesday October 11th, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
YWCA studio

We know that Canada's population is aging. With the first of the baby boom generation now reaching 65, there has been increasing discussion among parliamentarians about seniors care and a strategy involving the federal, provincial and territorial governments. Currently 16% of Canadians are over age 65, and that number is expected to grow to almost a quarter of the population by 2036.

I believe that the time has come to hear from my constituents on how we can work together to make this constituency more age friendly. With the negotiation of a new Health Accord underway between the federal, provincial and territorial governments, the timing could not be better to come up with solutions for how to respond to the health care needs of seniors in our constituency.

It is my pleasure to organize a constituency roundtable discussion on how to leverage the next Health Accord to deliver better care for Canada's seniors. Topics of discussion will include issues faced by patients as well as health care professionals.

The discussions will be of interest to more than seniors, however, if you have aging parents or loved ones to care for in the future, I believe you will also find the event well worthwhile.
