Canadian Perspectives on the Financial Realities of Ageing in Place

This report, produced by the National Institute on Ageing (NIA) in collaboration with HomeEquity Bank and Ipsos, provides insights on Canadians’ views on saving for their retirement. Based on the results of two Ipsos surveys, this report documents the perspectives of Canadians on their ability to save for and fund their retirement plans, on where they want to live as they age, and on the costs associated with the care they or a loved one might need to enable ageing in place. Finally, the report provides a range of existing solutions and potential options for Canadians to consider in order to make ageing at home more affordable.
