Montreal, September 13, 2012 It's often referred to as the "Silver Tsunami". The aging of the Canadian population will become a public health challenge in the coming decades.

The Montreal site will also be home to the CLSA Statistical Analysis Centre, which will coordinate data access and utilization for researchers.
