Special Focus on Seniors

Mar 13, 2011

Did you know that in 2006, over 71,000 Manitoba seniors (aged 65+) living in the community had a disability? And that's not counting the many thousands of seniors who lived on First Nations or in institutional settings. If all Manitobans were included, it is estimated the number of seniors with a disability in 2006 would have been 77,860.

This represents almost one in every two seniors who lived in the province in 2006 and almost 42% of all persons who had a disability. Barrier-Free Manitoba is pleased to include detailed coverage on this important and growing population in a feature section. Click here to visit the feature page.
