MONTREAL, Sept. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - In conjunction with the opening of the
9th Global Conference on Ageing and the very first Expo Ageing and Design
Montréal, the two co-chairs of these events, Irene Hoskins, President of the
International Federation on Ageing (IFA), and Claude Béland, former President
of Desjardins Group, together with Marguerite Blais, Québec's Minister
responsible for Seniors, will meet the media:
Date: Thursday, September 4, 2008 at 11:30 a.m.
Place: Palais des congrès de Montréal
The meeting will explain both the conference goals and the aspect of
innovation regarding the new Expo Ageing and Design Montréal. Conclusions
stemming from the conference to which the member countries of the IFA have
been convened, as well as some actions specific to Québec, may become adopted.
In the end, these conclusions will help us to prepare for this
never-before-seen phenomenon: an ageing population that will soon represent
over 20% of the inhabitants of the world.
