In the context of concerns over the health implications of the growing numbers of elderly people in Canada, in December of 1987 the federal government identified research priorities in the diseases of aging. Among these, dementia received especial attention and a national research programme on Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia was established.

In response, the Canadian Study of Health and Aging was developed as a joint university/government project to provide accurate information on dementia in Canada for policy and planning purposes. Field work was undertaken in 1991, 1996 and 2001.

Over the years since 1991, the results of the study have informed health policy in most provinces of Canada and, as results become available from the 2001 study, we anticipate increasing application of the study results in informing policy.

Hence, this web site has been designed to profile results that seem especially pertinent to policy makers, provincial and federal. As of July 2002, however, this part of the overall site remains under construction, but readers can obtain information on the study and its results by linking to the pages developed for researchers.
