Minister responsible for Seniors and Caregivers Marguerite Blais announced on June 12 that the Quebec government is allocating $50 million to a new five-year action plan to counter mistreatment of older adults. The 2022-2027 Action Plan to Combat Elder Abuse is the third action plan on this issue released since 2010.

The Action Plan has a dual goal: 

  •  to help every Quebecer identify and condemn all forms of elder abuse and,
  • to improve intervention methods to end situations of abuse as soon as possible. 

The plan contains 56 measures, including:

  • the creation of a prosecutor position dedicated to elder abuse within the Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions (DPCP).
  • the implementation of an outreach support system for long-term care home staff so that they can identify and report situations of abuse of residents.

Minister Blais declared countering the mistreatment of older adults is ''a collective responsibility as well as a duty of solidarity.''
