Program Description

“Canada's first national dementia strategy sets out a vision for the future and identifies common principles and national objectives to help guide actions by all levels of government, non-governmental organizations, communities, families and individuals. In developing the strategy, we sought at all times to ensure that people living with dementia and the family and friends who provide care to them were at the heart of these efforts.”

  • Engage in evidence-informed decision making, taking a broad approach to gathering and sharing best available knowledge and data; and
