East Hamilton pocket popular for older adults


The Hamilton Census Metropolitan Area’s largest aging population lives in the area bounded by Queenston Road, Nash Road South, King Street East and the old city boundary just west of Centennial Parkway.

A hefty 40.2 per cent of its residents are over 60. The CMA includes Grimsby and Burlington, but all three of the largest aging populations are in the City of Hamilton.

Trish, who is 65 and did not want her last name used, has lived at Centennial Parkway and Queenston Road for 30 years.

“Everything is at your fingertips,” she says. “A grocery store, a drugstore, a hospital. Plus, I don’t have to sit in a car for hours and hours just to get to the place where I can do my shopping.”
