dementiastrategycover"The vision for this strategy is bold and reflects the aspirations of the many individuals and organizations who contributed to its development. The actions undertaken to achieve the strategy’s national objectives may evolve over time, but every action will bring Canada closer to the vision of a Canada in which all people living with dementia and caregivers are valued and supported, quality of life is optimized, and dementia is prevented, well understood, and effectively treated.

Key to achieving this vision are five principles setting out values to guide the implementation of efforts in support of the national objectives and their areas of focus. In implementing the strategy, governments, non-governmental organizations, community organizations and others working on dementia should:

  • Prioritize quality of life for people living with dementia and caregivers;
  • Respect and value diversity to ensure an inclusive approach, with a focus on those most at risk or with distinct needs;
  • Respect the human rights of people living with dementia to support their autonomy and dignity;
  • Engage in evidence-informed decision making, taking a broad approach to gathering and sharing best available knowledge and data; and
  • Maintain a results-focused approach to tracking progress, including evaluating and adjusting actions as needed."
