ns actionplanforanagingpopulation"The Government of Nova Scotia is leading a shift in thinking and in practice that values, promotes, and supports how older adults in all their diversity make Nova Scotia a better place for all of us. It’s time to reframe the discussion about aging and build on the good news and benefits of our demographic shift. An aging population reflects advances in population health and improvements in the social and economic well-being of Nova Scotians. Older adults offer knowledge, skills, experiences, and connections that help people and communities thrive. People of all ages, including older adults, have much to contribute."


  • Value the social and economic contributions of older adults
  • Promote healthy, active living
  • Support aging in place, connected to community life
