who we are

The National Institute on Ageing is a Ryerson University think tank focused on the realities of Canada’s ageing population. 

We are Canada’s only think tank dedicated to policy solutions for an ageing population. We work at the intersections of healthcare, financial security, and social well-being.

what we do

We produce reports founded on the strongest available evidence and original research. We are a hub for experts, practitioners, decision makers, and the public. We advocate for solutions that promote the evolution and sustainability of Canadian systems and programs.

Through our work, our mission is to enhance successful ageing across the life course and to make Canada the best place to grow up and grow old.
