The Centre on Aging, University of Manitoba, was established on July 1, 1982, with a mandate to serve as a focal point for the conduct of research on aging. The Centre has developed a national and international reputation for excellence in research.
The experiences of aging individuals and the dynamics of an aging society are investigated using rigorous scientific standards. Community representatives contribute to projects, and the Centre distributes its findings to administrators, policy makers, practitioners, and seniors to assist them in making decisions.
The Centre on Aging believes listening to older adults and those who work with them ensures more appropriate research. Dialogue is encouraged through:
To be a recognized leader in aging and its application, to improve the lives of older adults, their caregivers and families, and to enhance communities within and outside of Manitoba.
The Centre conducts, stimulates and promotes research in its application, provides an interdisciplinary focus for the research activities in aging at the universities in Manitoba, and supports the education of students in aging. The Centre serves as the focal point for the integration and dissemination of research on aging in Manitoba.
