Gerontology

Become a service professional for one of Canada’s fastest growing populations.

With Canada’s population aging rapidly, quite similar to several Western countries, working with older adults and familiarity with aging and age-friendly practices will become more common in all areas of employment.

The aging of Baby-Boomers has created new opportunities for careers in Gerontology. Many of our graduates have successful careers as human service professionals, researchers, program directors, administrators and small business owners.
