ABOUT US


WHO WE ARE

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




WHAT WE DO

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.




EVIDENCE AND EXPERIENCE DRIVEN RESEARCH

Our reports are founded on the strongest available evidence and original research. Our work is led by experts and practitioners in the fields of financial security, healthcare delivery, and public policy.




COLLABORATION

With the backing of Ryerson University and our partners we work across private and public sectors to explore the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population.




CONSTRUCTIVE PUBLIC POLICY

We advocate for solutions that promote the evolution and sustainability of Canadian systems and programs. Our goal is to shift public policy and make Canada a place where ageing is a triumph and not a burden.
