The folks are alright: Older Canadians tend to be happier; most want to live to 90 or beyond


On average, the 65-plus crowd says ‘old age’ doesn’t begin until 80

June, 6 2016 – Most Canadians believe old age is “scary,” but those who are closest to it say they have less to fear than younger generations.

A study by the Angus Reid Institute finds the golden years remain golden for older Canadians – especially those who have already reached age 65.

Members of this group say they are pleased with how their lives have turned out so far. They don’t feel stressed, they do feel younger than their age, and they’re contemplating living to ages their parents’ generation would never have dreamed of.
