How’s your “senior trivia”? 12 facts you may not know about senior citizens in Canada

Watch out, Canada: our country is being taken over by senior citizens!

Okay, that’s not entirely true.

But what is true is that—for the very first time since Confederation—there are now more seniors in Canada than children. That means there are over 5.9 million people age 65 and over throughout our nation!

At Tea & Toast, it’s important that we stay on top of trends, facts and figures where seniors are concerned.

You might even say we are experts at “senior trivia” (if such a thing existed)!
