Seniors, commonly defined as persons 65 years of age or older represent the fastest growing segment of the Canadian population. Today they number about 5 million and they will comprise 25 % of the Canadian population in 25 years. In their lifetimes, Canada’s seniors have contributed enormously to our country’s well-being.

Like all sectors of our population, seniors have many needs, which vary from one individual to another and seniors, by virtue of their age often have a greater and more critical requirement for fulfillment than other sectors of our population. The Liberal Party of Canada has demonstrated a commitment to the well-being of seniors, by the Senior Liberals’ Commission of Canada, which promotes the special needs of seniors, encourages them to participate more fully in the affairs of the Party and to utilize their skills in other facets of our society.

Sincerely,

Kenneth Halliday
