Comfort Life's 14th Annual Retirement Living Guide Released Nationally

Comfort Life magazine's 14th annual issue will be released nationally this month. The magazine and website now reach more Canadians than ever before: over 350,000 people annually. This year, there are 2.5 million Canadians 75 and older, and just under 6 million (16.5% of the population) who are 65 and older.

Mississauga, Canada, October 15, 2016 --( Comfort Life magazine's 14th annual issue will be released nationally this month, syndicated in the Globe and Mail and distributed elsewhere across Ontario. The magazine is a rich resource for those looking for help finding retirement living. This year's expanded edition includes a focused section on the growing number of active lifestyle communities springing up across the country.

The retirement home and senior living industry is expected to continue sharp upward growth over the next ten years as the baby boomers continue to age. According to Statistics Canada Annual Demographic estimates for 2016, in July of this year, 16.5% of the population – just under 6 million Canadians or nearly one in six – was at least 65 years of age. Over 2.5 million of those people were 75 and older.

This entails the need for an increased number of retirement homes and active lifestyle communities, more government support for caregivers of the elderly, and a wealth of new job opportunities in gerontology and related disciplines – among many other effects. This change is exciting, says Comfort Life magazine's editor, Glen Herbert. "For those who are considering making a move, it's an exciting opportunity to find a community of like-minded people with similar interests and perspectives."

"We have consulted several recent issues of Comfort Life," says Toronto reader Bill Harrington. "The magazine is very informative, and the layout and descriptions of options are much clearer than any other brochure or booklet we've ever seen." Comfort Life is a unique, full-colour glossy magazine, produced by Our Kids Media, producer of other national guides like Our Kids Go to School, the well-respected national guide to private education.

The related website,, reaches over 250,000 Canadian families annually. It's fully updated with current information and includes recently added portals on topics ranging from active lifestyle communities to memory care and respite care.
