Older Adults

You are here: Home » Profiles » Older Adults

By 2031 more than one in five residents in Ottawa will be over the age of 65, as more of us will be entering the later years of our lives. Many older adults today remain physically fit, active, and continue to overcome countless challenges such as illness, disabilities, safety, discrimination and poverty.
