Many Degrees of Policy Freedom: The Federal Government’s Role in Care for Seniors

Published in November, 2011 as part of the Institute for Research on Public Policy,   IRPP Study Series this study by Harvey Lazar explore the imblance between the demand and supply of care for seniors.

He argues that although researchers have been warning of the aging of Canada’s population for decades, governments do not yet have an overarching policy strategy to deal with the profound, long-term socio-economic implications of this demographic shift, or its more immediate impact. He examines how the imbalance will grow and the need to re-evaluate the federal government’s policy role.
