Empowering SENIORS IN THE DIGITAL AGE

 

According to Statistics Canada, the population of seniors aged 65 and older in Ontario is projected to grow significantly in the coming decades, increasing from around 2.5 million in 2020 to over 4.5 million by 2046. This demographic shift presents a growing opportunity and need to address the unique educational and social needs of this rapidly expanding segment of the population.

The financial impact of fraud and scams targeting seniors is also staggering:

  • In 2018, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre reported that 4,545 seniors aged 60 and over were victimized by Mass Marketing      Fraud (MMF), resulting in losses of over $26 million.
  • Additionally, 1,597 seniors fell victim to identity theft, with combined losses from MMF and identity theft reaching over $31 million for seniors that year.
  • These figures have continued to rise, with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre reporting that seniors lost over $380 million to fraud in 2021, and a staggering $531 million in 2022.
