What does “aging and living well” mean to you?

Share your perspectives about what “aging and living well” looks like, and could look like, for 2SLGBTQI communities in Canada and how our communities could be better supported.

By asking about “aging and living well”, this national interview-based project seeks to expand understandings of aging in 2SLGBTQI communities beyond health alone and to open conversations about how 2SLGBTQI older adults can be better supported to continue to live in community.

This focus means that we seek to increase understanding and recognition of the wide range of material considerations (such as housing, finances, etc.) and distinct experiences that characterize aging and living well for 2SLGBTQI older adults.



Everyone who is 65 years of age or over, identifies as 2SLGBTQI, and is willing to participate in a telephone or video interview for this study is warmly invited to participate in our National Seniors Study.

We especially welcome the participation of 2SLGBTQI older adults who are Black, Indigenous, and people of colour, and who live in rural areas.

If that sounds like you or someone you love, you can learn more here.
