I think you're absolutely right. I agree with Anna from the Public Health Agency of Canada. We do know that seniors have a contribution to make well past the age of 65, whether it is in the paid labour market—and we're doing things to support their engagement in the paid labour market—or whether it's volunteerism. Seniors devote a lot of time to volunteer activities. The community relies on that work, so we certainly support that. There's caregiving as well. Seniors provide a great deal of support to family members, whether spouses or friends and family, and all of those are important to be supported.
The one thing I'll mention and that I did reference is the new horizons for seniors program, which has been commented upon. We absolutely use that program to support the social engagement, the continued partnership of seniors in communities. Whether they're involved in mentoring programs, whether they're involved in raising awareness for initiatives to remain engaged, whether they're supporting volunteer initiatives, that particular program is critical for continued engagement of seniors.
At the same time, in addition to supporting them to engage themselves, we're trying to raise awareness on issues that might prevent their full participation. In reference to elder abuse, the new horizons for seniors program has invested a great deal in elder abuse awareness, and wants to support awareness about how it's not acceptable. It needs to be addressed. You want to provide seniors with safe environments to participate, engage, provide care, and so on.
Absolutely, the door doesn't close at age 65. There are lots of contributions that people could make after that age.
