The Revera Report on Ageism: Independence and Choice As We Age explores the perspectives of Canadian men and women over the age of 20 and examines how these Canadians interpret the role of independence and choice both at their current age and how they imagine these factors playing out at other stages of their lives.

Age should not be a barrier to independence, choice and control over one’s life. The report identifies, quantifies and explores this vital issue, and concludes with recommendations for individuals, policy makers and organizations to improve the lives of older Canadians.
