The Aging Population Policy Framework

The Aging Population Policy Framework, the first of its kind in Canada, has been developed by the Government of Alberta to help "meet the needs of an aging population.” (Government of Alberta, 2010, p. i)

“The framework will help government to holistically approach the needs of the aging population, and to improve coordination between governments and the many partners that serve and support seniors.” (Government of Alberta, 2010)

Eight outcomes have been identified that will assist the province in preparing to meet the needs of an aging population, including the outcome that “Albertans have access to safe, affordable, appropriate and accessible transportation options during their senior years”. (Government of Alberta, 2010, p. v)

The 2010 BC Guide in Determining Fitness to Drive

British Columbia has recently released its new fitness to drive guidelines (The 2010 BC Guide in Determining Fitness to Drive). The Guide represents the British Columbia Medical Association (BCMA) and the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) “continuing commitment to anchor driver fitness determinations on the best-evidence available. In response to case law, the Guide presents an approach to driver fitness focused on functional ability to driver rather than diagnosis." "The Guide replaces the 1997 BC Guide for Physicians in Determining Fitness to Drive a Motor Vehicle, 7th edition.” (Government of British Columbia, 2010, p. i)
