Canada: Government Seeks Employer Views on Retaining and Attracting Older Workers

Alice Wong, Canada's Minister of State (Seniors), has announced that the National Seniors Council’s new priority for 2012 is to seek employers’ views on how to retain and attract older workers, specifically those who are most vulnerable.
"It is important that the Council speak to employers about their views on the challenges and opportunities of an aging workforce," said Minister of State Wong. "Input from the Council’s engagement activities will provide the Government of Canada with valuable information to help shape policies, programs and services that support older Canadians."
