resource image

The objective of this report is to share the key concerns and issues that arose from the roundtables on positive and active aging and volunteering among seniors. Another objective is to provide suggestions for action to the Government of Canada to address these matters.

The report is divided into two parts:

  1. an overview of positive and active aging and volunteering among seniors; and
  2. a synopsis of the nine roundtables held in 2009, with a focus on the key issues related to positive and active aging and volunteering among seniors, and Councils' suggestions for federal government action.
