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.

The National Institute on Ageing’s Envisioning Ageing in Place Conference on November 23, 2017, will bring together experts, thought leaders, practitioners and delegates to learn, share, and brainstorm key ideas and actions to support older adults to age in place. This conference will discuss ageing in place from a variety of perspectives, from neighbourhood and community capacity-building to age-friendly transportation and inclusive home design. Read the Program Booklet [PDF].

Re-Think Ageing

Our 2016 inaugural national conference was a huge success! We took a deep dive into the many issues facing older Canadians, and offered expertise through a series of panel and workshop discussions. To see a summary of last year’s event, please read our proceedings document. Also, if you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our e-news to stay up to date with the work of the NIA!
