Healthy Canada: Future Care for Canadian Seniors Understanding the pressure points from the aging of baby boomers Canada is grappling with the implications of the demographic bulge of aging baby boomers and many are wondering just how concerned we should be about the future demands on health care and costs. The Conference Board's report Future Care for Canadian Seniors: A Status Quo Forecast suggests that by 2026, over 2.4 million Canadians age 65+ will require paid and unpaid continuing care supports—up 71 per cent from 2011. By 2046, this number will reach nearly 3.3 million. Increases of this magnitude come with a range of pressures and implications for governments, care organizations and Canadians. Planning and providing care for the boomer generation The provision of continuing care supports is one of most pressing challenges facing governments and public and private care organizations in Canada as they look to balance health care service demands and costs in the context of an aging population.

!!! Every Monday, a group of dancers gathers in one of the Distillery District’s buildings. They’re preparing for the headlining show at Canada’s largest Brazilian Zouk event. The show is called Cirque du Zouk – and it’s exactly what it sounds like. Modeled after the famous Cirque du Soleil, this show features a mix of dance and circus arts telling a story full of romance, bravery, and mystical worlds. This particular Monday, the dancers are practicing a full run-through of the entire show. It’s the first time they’ve put the whole show together under the guidance of director Darius Zi. The rehearsal is so important that a contortionist and pole dancer travelled from Boston to attend. The performance will take place at Canada Zouk Congress: a weekend entirely devoted to Brazilian Zoukdance, with a full 2 days of workshops and 5 nights of parties. There are performers and teachers flying in fromBrazil, Europe, Abu Dhabi and more. Participants come from around the world to attend the weekend. BrazilianZouk is a sensual, flowing partner dance that mixes elements of contemporary, Lambada, and other Braziliandances. It first started developing in the 1990’s, and is quickly growing a worldwide reputation. Similar to Salsa,Brazilian Zouk is a ‘social’ dance. This means that people change partners every song and dance all night indance halls.Canada Zouk Congress also gives new dancers the chance to learn Zouk through their Newcomer pass.At $130, it’s a steal. In addition to 3 nights of parties, it gives participants over 10 hours of newcomer workshopsto learn how to Zouk – and they get to see Cirque du Zouk on the Saturday night.Of course, a $60 Saturday night only ticket is available, and includes admission to see Cirque du Zouk at around! 11pm on Saturday May 21, 2016.
