Hamilton, Ontario (May 21, 2009) The Government of Canada today announced a new study that will increase the understanding of common health problems affecting seniors. David Sweet, Member of Parliament for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale, made the announcement on behalf of the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health.

"This long-term study of 50,000 Canadians will look into the many factors affecting us as we age, while at the same time creating several new science-related jobs," said Minister Aglukkaq. "This information will be used to improve the health and quality of life of older Canadians."

"The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) will be one of the most comprehensive studies on aging ever undertaken," said Mr. Sweet. "It will inform the Government's programs and services for the elderly."

Dr. Anne MartinMatthews, Scientific Director at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, said, "Aging is a reality for all Canadians. Still, very little is known about how and why we age the way we do. The CLSA brings together the capacity, knowledge and expertise to unlock some of the greatest mysteries of aging and to identify the social and biological factors that have the most impact on our health over time."

The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) is a large, national, long-term study of adult development and aging. The study will follow 50,000 Canadians, aged 45-85 years (at the time of recruitment), over the next two decades. It is estimated that study organizers will be hiring as many as 160 researchers and research co-ordinators, laboratory staff and IT systems personnel over the next year at 10 centres across the country.

Researchers will collect information on the changing biological, medical, psychological, social and economic aspects of the p
