Abstract: Seniors constitute one of the fastest growing segments of the Canadian population. Anecdotal evidence suggests there is an increase in the number of Alberta seniors gambling, but there is minimal reliable information about seniors and gambling. AADAC decided to conduct an exploratory study of gambling in relation to adult Albertans age 65 years and older (seniors). The two primary research questions guiding the study were: 1. What are the gambling attitudes and behaviours of seniors? 2. What prevention and intervention strategies are most effective for seniors?
