Seniors Facing Possible Housing Pinch

Once thought of as one of Canada's youngest cities, Calgary's aging population could have implications on the city's real estate industry.

In 2011, the first wave of Calgary's 268,000 baby boomers – those born between 1945 and 1965 - turned 65.

It is estimated that there are around 100,000 seniors living in Calgary, a number that comprises roughly 10 per cent of the city's entire population. While it has taken a full 70 years for Calgary seniors to climb from five per cent to 10 per cent of the population, estimates suggest it will only take 30 years to climb to almost 20 per cent of the population by 2040.
