The study has three major themes:

- how the Government can improve access to housing for seniors including aging in place and affordable and accessible housing;
- how the Government can improve the income security for vulnerable seniors; and
- how the Government can improve the overall quality of life and well-being for seniors including community programming, social inclusivity and social determinants of health.
