Dear Mr. Kevin Flynn,
Our petition serves the purpose of bringing our concerns related to a future of our senior citizens to your attention along with some supportive facts.
Statistics Canada estimates that seniors outnumber children in Canada by a factor of 3 to 2 in 20 years’ time. This means that by 2036 the older population will be the largest population in Canada. The statistics are showing that more than 1 out of every 6 people in Canada is over the age of 65 as of July 2015.
One of the major issue in our province remains the affordable, subsidized and accessible housing options for seniors. This also raises the general public concerns whether there will be enough funds to finance all necessary areas to keep the aging population in Canada above the poverty line.
A smaller cohort of working age people may not necessarily be able to support upcoming financial demands in our society.
We believe that more effort should be placed on:
• Planning for better future of Canadian citizens at the older age.
• Budgeting for future expenses related to the health system, government pensions, continuing education and services for seniors.
• Government funding for housing options to avoid homelessness and the ongoing increase of health issues associated with pure living conditions faced by older adults.
With the demographic shift of our society within the next twenty years we believe these concerns are reasonable and should become a priority in order to keep our society healthy, educated and inclusive.
