About the consultation

We met in-person with hundreds of seniors, their families, caregivers and organizations who support and care for them.

Thousands of people also completed the online survey.

To receive feedback from diverse, ethnic and multicultural communities, the survey was available in 12 languages, in addition to English and French.

Feedback from the consultations and the online survey will inform a strategy to help seniors:

  • age at home and in communities
  • remain healthy, active and socially engaged
  • stay safe and secure
  • participate in the labour market and economy

In the fall, we expect to announce a government-wide seniors strategy that will help improve the lives of seniors.
