In 2011, an estimated 747,000 Canadians were living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias by 2031, it is estimated that 1.4 million Canadians will have dementia. In Canada 72% of Alzheimer's sufferers are women and 62% of dementia cases are also women. Much of the increase will be in developing countries like Western Europe and North America.
