Trent Centre for Aging & Society

Canadian Aging Studies Archive

Launched in 2016, the Canadian Aging Studies Archive is housed at our own Thomas J. Bata Library. The archive includes three key features. First, it holds the organizational archive of the Canadian Association on Gerontology, a foundational collection relating to the history of gerontology in Canada. Second, the archive will contain the essential materials of pioneers in the field of Canadian gerontology. The third element is an open activist collection that chronicles the ongoing work of individual aging activists and organizations.

An important and growing resource, the Canadian Aging Studies Archive helps position Trent University as an essential hub of aging research nationally.
