About AGEWORKS

About AGEWORKS

AGEWORKS is a company committed to reducing the ageism stigma and debunking myths about older people in both the workplace and the marketplace. AGEWORKS not only raises awareness of issues associated with ageism but has introduced tangible initiatives to support companies who target older individuals, encourage and assist individuals who wish to reinvent themselves and celebrate the “art of ageing” through workshops, special events and forums.

While many see the aging population as a problem, we see it as an opportunity to positively impact the Canadian economy and the lives of all generations by maximizing the skills, talents, experience and buying power of older people. We believe that “age works” to the advantage of business and society at large.
