Biography / History

The 2001: Coming of Age in Canada Conference was held at Trent University from June 3-6, 1977. Planning started in 1974 or 1975. The conference covered a number of issues regarding concerns for the aged who by the year 2001 would make up 12 percent of Canada's population. The Conference was established to discuss the concerns such as implications for universities and colleges, businesses and industries. The Conference presented social, political, economical, cultural and educational points of view to be discussed by the attendees such as whether these institutions would be able to cope with an old population instead of the younger population of the day.
