The Empire Club of Canada Presents:
Jeffrey C. Lozon President and CEO, Revera Inc. With A New View on Ageism: Exploring the Social, Policy and Business Implications For An Aging Canada
Jeffrey Lozon is President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of Revera Inc.
Statistics lead to the Canadian population aging more rapidly than ever before. The population of those over the age of 65 has surged to nearly five million over the past five years and growing faster than any other group—a trend that is poised to take on momentum. With these statistics comes the fear of an increase in health care, a work force that is aging, and an ever-increasing rate and a shrinking net worth for young Canadians.
Mr. Lozon is living in this world of statistical concerns and negative attitudes everyday as President of Revera Inc, a leader in seniors’ accommodation and care. Prior to his position at Revera, Mr. Lozon held a 17-year tenure as President and CEO of St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. During his time at St. Michael’s, he was seconded to the position of Deputy Minister of Health and Long-term Care for the province of Ontario. In addition, he served as the Vice-Chair for Canada Health Infoway and the founding Chair of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer.
In December 2009, Mr. Lozon was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada for his innovative and sustained leadership in health-care management and for having advanced patient care, most notably at St. Michael’s. Mr. Lozon has held faculty positions at the University of Toronto, the University of Alberta and the University of Saskatchewan. He holds an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws from Bishops University, a certificate from the senior executive program of the Stanford University School of Business, a Masters of Health Services Administration from the University of Alberta, and an Honours BA from the University of Guelph.
