Generation Squeeze is a national collaboration. Vancity Community Foundation is the entity through which our charitable activities are delivered. The Association for Generational Equity (AGE) is the home for our non-profit social enterprise. Research is coordinated by Dr. Paul Kershaw in his University of BC research and knowledge translation lab.
The thing squeezed Canadians in their 20s, 30s and 40s need more of, we believe, is influence, both in politics and the market. Looking around for inspiration, we found it in the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, a network of 300,000+ people who successfully lobby governments on behalf of Canadians 50+.
We think it’s time there was an equivalent lobby for Canadians in their 40s and younger.
Not because we want to work against the interests of our parents or grandparents, but because we believe in a Canada that works for all generations.
