AGE-WELL Policy Rounds: Responding to the COVID-19 Emergency, Returning to Growth: Older Workers and the Pandemic Recovery

April 1 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Responding to the COVID-19 Emergency, Returning to Growth: Older Workers and the Pandemic Recovery

Date: April 1, 2021 at 1:00 pm ET

Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the Canadian economy in a severe and unprecedented manner. For older workers and their families, the pandemic represents an ongoing challenge to their livelihoods, employment status, and financial well-being. Moreover, the current public health risks associated with COVID-19 also threatens the policy goal of increasing the labour force participation of older workers over the course of the next decade.

This presentation will address the following policy question: what actions can be taken to ensure the financial well-being of older Canadians and support the future labour force contributions of older workers beyond the COVID-19 pandemic?

Speaker: Jonathan Lai, APPTA Policy Challenge Participant and MSc candidate, University of Alberta
