The demographic bubble represented by the Baby Boomer generation is beginning to graduate into that stage of life known as senior citizenry and, as such, there will be a shift in the overall distribution of the global population from a majority of young people to a majority of older people.

The City of Calgary, however, lags far behind many other cities in Canada and in the world in terms of preparation for this change.
