Abstract: 

Acknowledging that Haliburton County is a place where large numbers of seniors have chosen to retire, this paper sets out to determine the relationships among the senior population and their links with the rest of Haliburton County's residents.

Related academic literature is presented along with background information on the County itself and past findings of other related research. The methodology of the present study is outlined and a survey of existing services for seniors is detailed. Personal accounts of retirement experiences lead into more general observations of retirement collected from a social survey. Finally, there is a discussion of significant trends and patterns that have evolved in the Haliburton Highlands and recommendations are given for the community and future researchers.
