Seniors in the Outaouais

English-speaking seniors are a vibrant and vital part of our regional demographic. In fact, the proportion of Anglophone seniors (aged 65 and over) population is significantly higher than the relative proportion in the Francophone majority population in the Outaouais. English-speaking seniors may face greater challenges navigating the health care system in French; however, seniors of both language groups may also face issues of isolation, lack of familiarity with changes in the system, or discomfort with the idea of using “remote” services such as Info-Santé to access health information.
