Project description


Population aging is a global phenomenon and concern, and the jurisdictional issues in the delivery of policies to support the elderly are similar in Canada and China. The population aging of our nations raises various challenges and issues. This project, called Population Aging and Policy Initiatives in Canada and China: A Collaborative Working Seminar and Comparative Research Development Initiative, was undertaken by an interdisciplinary team of Canadian and Chinese social scientists, and explored the potential for launching a research program focused on mutual issues of concern and need respecting the demographic attributes and socio-economic and policy challenges of the aging of our populations.
