About Us

The mission of the Global Aging and Community Initiative is to create new knowledge focused on the health and well-being of older persons worldwide through collaborative research across a broad global scientific community. The Initiative is supported by the Tier 1 Canada Research Chair and housed at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
