End of project: March 2017

The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse is the proud recipient of the Family Violence Initiative Fund from the Department of Justice Canada. This fund “supports the development, implementation, testing and assessment of models, strategies and tools to improve the justice system's response to family violence. It also supports projects that raise public awareness of the issue and encourage public involvement in responding to family violence”. (learn more about the FVIF here)

This grant will enable CNPEA to conduct a review of existing material and to add key resources on the Hub about abuse of older adults in a family context. These new resources, paired with webinars and a communications campaign, will aim to raise awareness and will provide important information for stakeholders, victims, and their loved ones, about the laws and law enforcement response across Canada.

As part of this project, the CNPEA Hub will deliver

  • Stand-alone resources about elder abuse in the context of family violence, from research to relevant laws, and law enforcement activities and programmes in each jurisdiction.
  • Two webinars for professionals working with seniors about relevant laws, research, current trends, how to report elder abuse crimes to the police etc. Look out for our webinars in October 2016 and February 2017
