This Generation

NewsreadersThe top end age of the Baby Boomers in Canada (born between 1946 and 1965) will be seventy-three years old in 2019 and will have replaced in positions of leadership and in the workplace the Elders who will then be seventy-four and over. All of the mainline churches in Canada will be affected by this phenomenon but in different ways. David Rando in his book, "Boomers: Twisting The Retirement Mindset" explains the Baby Boom phenomena occurring in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.

United States

Man sitting on WorldFrom 1946 to 1964, 78 million new Americans were born. It was a population explosion in the United States, and this generation came to be known as the Baby Boom Generation. The Boomers' hard work has fuelled the rapid expansion of the U.S. economy over the past forty years. Now, this generation is reaching retirement age. In 2006, the first set of Baby Boomers reached age 60, with 4 million Baby Boomers set to turn 60 each year after that for the next 18 years. The Canadian, United States and British populations are similar with a slight variation in the dates when each Baby Boom Generation began and ended.
