Think older Canadians don’t have a lot of money?
They’re actually a growing market for businesses and companies from all kinds of industries stand to benefit in the next five to 10 years – companies ranging from fitness clubs and specialized seniors’ grocery stores to home care companies and others.
With this in mind, Sheridan College’s Elder Research Centre is holding one of its quarterly breakfast meetings on Wednesday to help raise awareness about opportunities for local businesses.
Wednesday’s event is focused on technologies that help older Canadians with aging and includes speakers from two local tech companies.
The breakfast starts at 8 a.m. and will take place at the college’s Oakville Campus at 1430 Trafalgar Road.
