About Us

Our Founder's Story

I started this business to harness a huge and emerging economic, social and cultural asset in our society: The 50+ cohort that is exiting their traditional careers but remain very interested in contributing to their communities.

Our team is working on solving one of Canada’s most pressing issues – how to best serve the rapidly growing baby boomer population by matching boomers, recent retirees and seasoned professionals with employers looking to tap into this massive hidden talent pool.

As a BoomersPlus member, you’ll receive exclusive information and carefully developed promotions that we hope will help you design and live the second act of your choice.

Ever onward!
