Seniors are the fastest growing demographic in our province, with 400 Ontarians turning 65 years of age every day. Current estimates predict that Ontario will have over 3 million by 2023 – that is about 400,000 more seniors than today.
Ontario’s seniors have made life long contributions to Ontario. We know that most seniors want to live healthy and independent lives in their own homes and communities. Seniors also want to remain active and be safe and secure, no matter where they call home. In light of this, our government is developing a government-wide seniors strategy that will improve the lives of seniors and provide the supports and resources to help them:
- age at home and in communities
- remain healthy, active and socially engaged
- stay safe and secure
- participate in the labour market and in the economy
To do this right, we would like to hear from seniors, their family members and unpaid caregivers about their experiences. Your feedback will be used to shape the overall strategy to improve the lives of seniors (aged 65 and over) across Ontario, as well as the people who work with or support seniors.
This survey is anonymous and will only take about 20 minutes to complete. We encourage you to answer as many questions as you can to help shape a strategy that will make a difference to all seniors.
If you are not a senior, we ask that you please answer these questions with the perspective of someone aged 65 and over in mind (where appropriate).
With your feedback, we can achieve our goal to do what’s right by Ontario’s seniors, and shape a promising future for everyone in this province.
