The Nova Scotia Centre on Aging (NSCA) was established in 1992 with the mandate of applied research, continuing education and community outreach/consultation in age-related issues.

The NSCA is affiliated with Mount Saint Vincent University's (MSVU) Department of Family Studies and Gerontology. The NSCA works in partnerships with others - the academic community, governments, private sector, seniors, and voluntary/professional organizations - on initiatives which will benefit the aged, their families, and communities.

The NSCA has received recognition for its research excellence, interdisciplinary collaboration and partnerships with stakeholders. The NSCA, through its networks, expertise and publications, is a resource to university scholars, students, community-based researchers, practitioners, educators, government, service providers, seniors' and professional organizations, media, and families.


The NSCA has undertaken research projects, continuing education initiatives, and community outreach activities to address ways to promote and maintain autonomy and quality of life for the elderly population and their families. 

Main research areas

The NSCA's main areas of expertise are focused on issues related to family caregiving, continuing care, and healthy aging. Project topics have included: age-friendly communities, human resource planning, caregiver support, seniors housing, prescription drug use, technology and older adults, and Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias.
