The focus of this project is to interrogate the ways in which retirement-related migration patterns among diverse older populations are negotiated and informed by health policies that can serve to inform access to health-related services. Health polices can, for example, impact on access to health services and resources for diverse populations of older adults, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirit (LGBTQ2) populations. This is, we argue, an important and yet largely overlooked topic in advancing our understanding of health equity, health policy and access to health services in the context of Canada and select EU member states.
