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
