Buzz Aldrin lands at MaRS - Apollo 11 astronaut headlines The Ontario
Innovation Summit: The Business of Aging

TORONTO, Nov. 30 /CNW/ - He's an inventor, war veteran, space pioneer, advocate and visionary. One of the most celebrated astronauts in U.S. history, Buzz Aldrin touches down for a special appearance this week - 40 years after he and Neil Armstrong made their historic Apollo 11 moonwalk.

Dr. Aldrin is delivering a keynote address as part of The Ontario Innovation Summit: The Business of Aging, programmed and hosted by MaRS Discovery District in conjunction with the Province of Ontario.

The global aging phenomenon represents our own "moonshot" - a seemingly impossible mission that requires an intense, focused, collaborative effort by a broad range of experts working toward a single goal. This influential international conference brings together a world-class audience of industry professionals, who will explore the profound public policy challenges as well as a myriad of market opportunities associated with this impending demographic shift.

Can we launch a "moonshot mission" of our own in Ontario? We at MaRS believe we can. For more on the Business of Aging, visit
