As Canada’s demographics shift, it’s time to embrace ‘Age Liberation’
By Helen Hirsch Spence
The world is on the precipice of a new revolution. Becca Levy, author of Breaking the Age Code, refers to it as “Age Liberation.” For decades, age has suffered an increasingly bad rap, but the paradigm is slowly shifting. With more Canadians over age 65 than under age 15, and close to one-quarter of the population turning 65 by 2025, Canada will need to prepare for a much older society. READ MORE

When the retirement age of 65 was first conceived, the average lifespan was 62, the current average is 82 and it’s growing longer all the time. Ask yourself, does it make sense, for reasons of age alone, to discard or disregard, the knowledge, expertise, and wisdom of our olders?
I’ve heard the expression, the ‘messy middle’, to describe the stage of life that those born between 1945-1964, or earlier, are living through today. The last of the Boomer generation will turn 65 in 2030 which means a large majority are experiencing a period of transition that can be both frightening, and exciting.
