Transitions: Ageing Across the Life Course – 2018 Annual Knowledge Exchange

The 13th Annual Knowledge Exchange will be a two-day event co-hosted by NICE and Ryerson University’s National Institute on Ageing (NIA) focusing on “Transitions: Aging Across the Life Course”.

The theme of the 2018 Exchange reflects the emphasis of two historic milestones:

    1. The positive and supportive aspects of growing older in Canada that have allowed for transitions to later life with greater longevity, better health, happiness, and financial security.

    2. The fact that the number of seniors in Canada continues to grow and our nation is recognized as an age-friendly ‘nation for all’.

These milestones can be met with hope and optimism, as findings suggest that older adults in Canada are able to effectively manage many of the major life transitions that may be unsettling, and to benefit from the ones that present new beginnings. Older adults are active social and cultural resources for society, yet, aging and its associated transitions are often portrayed as a time of dependence, loss and passivity.
