Consulting Services to Study the Historic and Projected Spatial Distribution of Older Adults in Ontario and Their Living Arrangements

2013

Client: Ministry of Infrastructure

The goal of this project was to map and analyse the spatial distributions of older adults in Ontario and their living arrangements in order to inform long-range planning for age-friendly communities throughout Ontario and other future policy work for the Ministry of Infrastructure’s Ontario Growth Secretariat. The deliverables support planning for age-friendly communities by assessing where and how Ontario’s population has been aging over time and may continue to age into the future. Key tasks included: organizing census data and existing population projections in a spreadsheet format: bringing all data and statistics into a geographic information system (GIS) format; illustrating key trends through a series of maps and graphs and reporting research results. The Ministry is interested in better understanding the following: The historic and projected spatial distribution of Ontario’s aging population; how living arrangements among older adults in Ontario have changed; and how Ontario’s urban and rural populations may be aging differently
