By 2031, 1.4 million Canadians will have dementia. That’s less than 20 years away.

Canada needs a national dementia strategy to curb the social, economic and personal costs of this disease and better prepare us for the future.

What does a national dementia strategy mean to fellow Canadians?

Jim Mann

Some people may look at me and think, 'He doesn't have Alzheimer's disease.' If only that were true! Canada needs a national dementia strategy to better support those of us who have the disease already, and those who will develop it in the future. Without a plan to deal with the growing number of Canadians with dementia, we will all experience its impact. - Jim Mann
