On January 30, 2019, the CNPEA participated in a Roundtable in Toronto hosted by the FCAC. In response to a commitment by the Government of Canada “to respond to the unique needs of Canada’s aging population’’, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada will ‘’engage with banks and seniors’ groups to create a voluntary code of conduct (hereinafter referred to as the “Code”)  to guide banks in their delivery of services to Canada’s seniors.” (Fall Economic Statement 2018). We were pleased to be invited to participate in the roundtable discussion and to provide comments/feedback on the draft Code. You can find a summary of our comments below.

silverfox photo3Over the course of two trade shows (the OLTCA's Together We Care Convention and Trade Show, and Advantage Ontario's 100th AGM and Convention), the wonderful Silver Fox Pharmacy team raised $1,000 for CNPEA. 

Silver Fox staff hosted a bracelet-making station at their booth during the events: conference participants could make a bracelet to take home for each bracelet made, Silver Fox donated $1 to CNPEA. Fun, creative and philanthropic!

To everyone who participated and made a bracelet in our name, to Josh Cole and his fantastic team, a huge thank you, this generous donation is truly appreciated by all of us here at CNPEA.
