Seniors are one of the fastest growing groups in Canadian society. Currently about 13% of Canadians are aged 65 and over. By 2041, this age group will make up an estimated 23% of the population. This dramatic increase has resulted in a host of legal issues related to aging. Equally important are the interconnected social, economic, and health needs of older persons and their families.

LexisNexis® Butterworths Advising the Older Client is the first comprehensive, critical examination of Elder Law in Canada. A national pioneer in developing Canadian Elder Law, General Editor Ann Soden has assembled a first-rate team of contributors from across Canada. Their diverse backgrounds and practice areas - ranging from law, healthcare, and social work to academia, government, and private practice - give a truly national, multidisciplinary perspective on this quickly developing field.
