“the grey tsunami” has become a buzz phrase for the phenomenal tide of retiring seniors who are living longer than ever and are understandably expecting to be provided for by our universal health care system. Consider the following statistics:
The number of seniors will increase by 43% in the next decade. At current spending levels, the Ontario government will need to devote an annual $24 billion to seniors by 2033 (50% more than the annual expendi-ture today). There are expected to be about 9.8 million senior Canadians by 2036.
