Figure 2: Seniors by age Sub-groups as % of the total population, Canada, 1921-2041

This figure represents the percentage of seniors, by age sub-group (65-74, 75-84 and 85+), that make-up the total population of Canada in a given year. The chart begins in 1921 where seniors represented approximately 5% of the Canadian population. This number is expected to increase to approximately 23% by 2041. By looking at this chart, it is evident that the senior population of Canada has increased with the years, but more importantly that it will continue to do so at an incredible pace in the years to come.
