Long-term care in Canada

John Stackhouse, SVP Office of the CEO will interview Dr. Samir Sinha, Director of Geriatrics at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital, and director at National Institute on Aging, and Leanne Kaufman, President, RBC Royal Trust on the challenges facing older Canadians in this pandemic, what they can do to protect themselves and how caregivers can support them now and in the future.

Meet the speakers:

  • John Stackhouse: John is responsible for interpreting social, political and economic trends and sharing insights on how they affect RBC, our clients and society at large.
  • Dr. Samir Sinha: In addition to his medical practice, Dr. Sinha is the Director of Health Policy Research for the National Institute on Aging, and a passionate and respected advocate for the needs of older Canadians.

This talk is being put on in honor of RBC Wealth Management Canada and Royal Trust's new partnership with The National Institute on Ageing (NIA), a Ryerson University think tank focused on researching and developing solutions for Canada's ageing population. The topics covered are ones that affect all of us and their importance has been underscored by the pandemic.
