Landmark Study Report #2: The Many Faces of Dementia in Canada
Released January 22, 2024
Dementia is a major public health problem in Canada and around the world, affecting millions of people. Research indicates significant variations in the risk of development, prevalence, clinical presentation, and health outcomes across various communities in Canada, including differences in ethnicity, race, sex, gender and age.
With the rapid rise of our aging population in Canada, this is one of the first studies that seeks to better understand the many faces of dementia, so that no one is left behind and we’re able to serve their specific needs and those in their circle of care.
