Canadian Age Trends and Transitions to 2016
How we are shaping our shared future

Over 300 age-based projections about the future of Canada

The future covers households, the labour force, education, time use, physical activities, sports, cultural activities, health care, crime, finances and household expenditures. All of the projections start in 2003 and end in 2016. The report sells for $39.95 plus GST and this includes free shipping. See the table of contents below.

The premise behind this report is very simple. We all know that Canada's age structure will continue to change. We also know that, on average, people do certain things at predictable times in their lives as we go through life transitions. This report combines the future age trends and the latest life transitions and paints an exciting and plausible picture of the future. This is a future, that we are shaping by simply being ourselves.

Canadian Age Trends and Transitions to 2016 will assist forward-looking individuals, thinkers and planners in business, government, labour organizations, investment counseling, educational institutions, economic and social development groups, libraries, consulting, non-profits and the average Canadian. Don't be left out of the future.
