As the 21st century unfolds, the study of aging will increase in importance. Canada's population will have more older people than ever before. These people will make new demands on Canada's healthcare, retirement income, and housing resources. They will also bring new interests, skills, and approaches to later life. People young and old will need to understand the realities of aging in this new era. This text presents a full picture of aging-problems and all. But it also emphasizes the opportunities and advantages of later life to illustrate its underlying theme: successful aging. This theme makes more sense today than ever before. Longer life and more years of activity and good health have changed the landscape of old age. With the new, seventh edition of this text, a number of new pedagogical features have been included to engage students and provide a deeper understanding of how the topic relates to their lives and society as a whole.
