Reframing Aging – Empowering Older Adults
Reframing Aging, Empowering Older Adults: CIHR-IA’s Strategic Plan 2023-2028
Every Canadian deserves a healthy experience of aging and care that meets them where they are. Across the country, Canada’s research on the aging community is helping to make that happen. The CIHR Institute of Aging is one of 13 institutes that makes up the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. We’re on a mission to advance training, research and knowledge to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of all Canadians as they age. Informed by many voices across our community, our Strategic Plan lays out a path to foster research that will achieve equitable health outcomes and enable healthy aging for all older Canadians. We’re focused on:
- Implementing prevention strategies and promoting health and wellbeing in aging
- Adapting health and care systems to better address the needs of older adults
- And improving lived and living experiences and quality of care in the later years

CIHR-IA launches strategic plan to reframe aging and empower older adults
Everyone deserves a healthy experience of aging and care that meets them where they are. The CIHR Institute of Aging (CIHR-IA) has launched a five-year plan to reframe what it means to age, refocus on the value of lived and living experiences and reposition health care and supports to empower older adults to live vibrant, healthy lives at every stage.
As Canada supports demographic changes, a rapidly growing older adult population and post-pandemic recovery, research is needed now more than ever to advance our understanding of what comprises health in aging and to implement effective models of care through integrated care systems. Aligned with CIHR’s vision to achieve the best health for all, the CIHR-IA Strategic Plan 2023-2028 lays out a path to foster research that will achieve equitable health outcomes and enable healthy aging for all older Canadians.
CIHR-IA’s Strategic Plan 2023-2028 is available in French and English.
