You are invited to participate in a psychological research study conducted by Dr. Lindsay Malloy at Ontario Tech University

The research is being carried out in hopes of finding ways to encourage older adults (65+) to report maltreatment. This research concerns police interactions with older adults. Researchers would like to speak with police who have experience interviewing older adults about their experiences, challenges, concerns.

scoa logo rgbcolorUntil recently, bullying was believed to be a childhood phenomenon. We now recognize that bullying occurs at all ages and stages and in all settings.

For many older adults, aging in place means moving from their family home into a communal living facility. Community living presents challenges that Saskatoon Council on Aging [SCOA] was made aware of through community engagement activities in congregate living dating back to 2013. Community members identified senior-to-senior bullying to SCOA’s Older Adult Abuse Task Force (OAATF) as a significant issue negatively impacting the quality of life of older adults.

Back in 2000, a small group of stakeholders and forward thinkers got together to discuss the need for a pan Canadian network. The goal: connecting the numerous people working to stop elder abuse across Canada, and providing access to reliable, up-to-date information to all.

They already knew that elder abuse was a much larger issue than most realized. They also understood that the only efficient way to address this growing issue was to build an informed, coordinated, and cross-sectoral approach, and to increase awareness and understanding of elder abuse among Canadians. From their first meeting to the launch of our knowledge-sharing Hub in 2015, to today - it has been a long road.

Throughout 2020 we will run a fundraising campaign called 20-20 and we hope that you will choose to support us during this landmark year.

Welcome to a new decade! 2020 is also the year we celebrate our 20th anniversary. It took 20 years to turn an idea into the Network that you know today. For this, we owe a great deal to a group of dedicated, visionary people. These thought-leaders had the expertise and the wisdom to see what no one else could see: that elder abuse was a much larger issue than most knew, that Canada was not ready for the upcoming demographic trends, and that addressing this growing issue required an informed, coordinated, and cross-sectoral approach and increased awareness and understanding of elder abuse. And then they did something about it. From the first informal meetings to talk about building a pan Canadian Network, to the launch of our innovative knowledge-sharing Hub in 2015, to today - it has been a long road.

We are proud of what we accomplished: in 2019, 14,000 visitors came to our site and triggered more than 73,000 downloads of various tools and resources. CNPEA was accredited to join the UN’s Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing, we spoke in front of the House of Commons about obstacles to the well-being for older women, and we received a record number of media requests to speak about elder abuse. We are on the right track, and our job is far from done.
