Résumé :

Canada's population is not only aging, it is also becoming increasingly diverse: more than 200 ethnic groups were reported in the 2001 Census. Yet for the most part, aging-related programs
and policies continue to treat the seniors population as a homogeneous group and the variety of needs, concerns and histories of ethnocultural minority seniors often go unrecognized.

The purpose of this document is to examine the key challenges and disadvantages that ethnocultural minority seniors can face in terms of income, health, health care and family and community support, and to recommend policy directions to ensure that they have the same opportunity for health and well-being as other seniors in Canada.
