Study: Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian seniors

Released: 2021-10-18

Although COVID-19 has affected all Canadians, seniors are particularly vulnerable to its health impacts, including a higher risk of hospitalization, complications, as well as death. A new article published today, "Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian seniors," summarizes some of the health, social, and financial impacts of the pandemic on seniors in Canada.

A more complete understanding of how seniors have fared during the early periods of the pandemic can help ensure that their current and future needs are met.


The article "Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian seniors" is now available in Insights on Canadian Society (Catalogue number75-006-X).
