Who We Are

The Trent Centre for Aging & Society gathers faculty, students, staff, and community stakeholders to build meaningful dialogue that challenges entrenched ideas about aging, old age and older people.

Home to two Canada Research Chairs as well as faculty and students from Canadian Studies, English Literature, Gender & Women's Studies, Geography, Kinesiology, Nursing, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, and Sustainability Studies, along with partners from municipal, health care and community sectors, TCAS is a catalyst for collaborative aging studies from a diversity of perspectives.   

Our Vision

Trent University is an international leader in interdisciplinary aging studies that seeks to celebrate aging, understand diverse experiences of aging, and challenge ageist practices in our communities and culture.
