For first time, Canadian seniors outnumber children


Senior citizens outnumbered children for the first time across the country, according to a Statistics Canada report released Tuesday. On July 1, 2015, people 65 and older made up 16.1 per cent of the Canadian population, slightly surpassing the 16 per cent who were 14 and younger. Of 35,851,800 Canadians, there are 5,780,900 seniors and 5,749,400 children, according to preliminary estimates.
