...As Canada's population ages, the number of Canadians
living with dementia is projected to double within a generation, thereby
affecting 1.1 million people and costing Canada's health care system in
excess of $150 billion.
It is therefore the kind of research our government is proud to sponsor.
Today, I am happy to announce that our government is investing in the state-of-the-art equipment necessary to build Dr. Heisz's Neurophysiology of Fitness Lab.
I am also pleased to announce that our government is investing more than $30.4 million in state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure at 32 universities across Canada.
