Seniors make up the fastest growing age group. This trend is expected to continue for the next several decades do mainly to an increase in life expectancy, and the effects of the baby boom. In 2003, an estimated 4.6 million Canadians were 65 years of age or older, a number that is expected to double in the next 25 years.
