Introducing the National Institute on Ageing

The National Institute on Ageing (the NIA) is a newly formed research center, marking the evolution and expanded mandate of the Pension Innovation and Research Centre (PIRC). The NIA contemplates both the financial and health aspects of ageing. This Institute will produce practitioner-oriented, actionable research, education, and innovation, and forge partnerships with other organizations and institutions, to advance knowledge and inform policy related to the four pillars outlined in the National Seniors Strategy, released in October 2015:

  • Independent, Productive and Engaged Citizens
  • Healthy and Active Lives
  • Care Closer to Home
  • Support for Caregivers

Learn more about these pillars and the related work of the NIA.

Merck Case Comp

The NIA has partnered with Merck and Ryerson Marketing Association to produce our first National Student Case Competition:! This Case Competition on Adult Immunization is part of our commitment to supporting the health and well-being of older Canadians. Immunization is one of the most effective ways of preventing illness and maintaining healthy and active lives as we age. Teams of 2-3 students can submit their proposals until Monday, January 23rd, and the winners will be announced March 17th, 2017 in Toronto!
