 Alberta seniors spend less money on health related services and 

supports such as emergency treatment than non-seniors

According to the Alberta Government Demographic Planning Commission,

Discussion Guide, published in Summer 2008, Alberta seniors in 2004, 

spent an average of $1,733 each on health, including health care supplies,

pharmaceutical products, eye-care and health insurance premiums. 

By comparison, non-seniors in Alberta each spent an average of $2,200. 

Future seniors are expected to continue the trend of improved health.
