Raising the Profile Project logo

In B.C. our population is aging, and at the forefront of providing services to this population are municipal and non-profit Community-Based Seniors’ Services (CBSS). CBSS provide a range of low-barrier programs and services to seniors in the core areas of nutritional supports; health and wellness; physical activity; educational, cultural and recreational programs; information, referral, and advocacy; transportation; and affordable housing.

The idea for the Raising the Profile Project (RPP) came from a workshop on senior centres at a conference with the Seniors Advocate in the spring of 2015.

From June 1st to 30th, the Northwest Territories will be honouring and recognizing the seniors in our families and communities. This is the 17th year that the Northwest Territories Seniors' Society has celebrated the contribution, wisdom and experiences of older adults in the NWT. Just a few days ago, Glen Abernethy, Minister Responsible for Seniors, publicly recognized June as Seniors Citizens' Month, June 1 as Intergenerational Day, and June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (full speech available here).

The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) is seeking proposals for an evaluator for a three-year project entitled “Increasing Access to Justice for Older Adult Victims of Sexual Assault: A Capacity Building Approach” (“Increasing Access Project”).  

When we submitted the proposal for the Increasing Access Project we took care to ensure that the project objectives support our Strategic Plan. Now that we are at the stage of drafting a more detailed workplan for the project we intend to craft the workplan so that the activities fulfill project requirements and advance Strategic Plan objectives.

We would like the evaluator to help us develop a workplan and an evaluation framework for the Increasing Access Project, and then to evaluate the project. The evaluator must have experience with project evaluation, work plans, and strategic planning. He/ she must also have strong facilitation skills. 

To read the full Call for Proposals, click HERE.

Proposals can be submitted to:
CNPEA coordinator Benedicte Schoepflin at  on or before June 2 at 5 pm p.s.t.
The successful proposal will be confirmed on or before June 8, 2017 at 5 p.m. p.s.t.
