Discusses how, as the baby boom generation begins to turn 65 in 2011, the aging of Canada's population will accelerate, and the health care system will need to adapt to meet the future needs of a growing senior population. Shows striking differences between women and men. Notes, "Most seniors are women, especially among the older age groups. For example, women accounted for 52% of seniors age 65 to 74 and 60% of seniors age 75 and older in 2010. Women will continue to outnumber men into the future; however, this gender split will become more even as the age gap in life expectancy narrows for men and women."
