News release from Financial Consumer Agency of Canada

July 25, 2019
Ottawa, Ontario

Today, the banking industry adopted a Code of Conduct for the Delivery of Banking Services to Seniors (the code). The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) will monitor banks to ensure they comply with the code.

The code is an important first step in guiding banks in their delivery of services to meet the needs of seniors. Banks who have signed on to the code must abide by its principles. 

The code will come into effect by January 1, 2021. However, effective immediately, banks must abide by principles 5 and 6, which will require them to mitigate potential financial harm to seniors and take into account market demographics and the needs of seniors when proceeding with branch closures.

The Government of Alberta has released Addressing Elder Abuse: A Toolkit for Developing a Coordinated Community Response to help communities develop a framework to address elder abuse at the local level. 

ab ccr cover

This toolkit is intended to help build a community-specific, multi-disciplinary approach to addressing elder abuse. It provides a five-step process that communities, civil society organizations and individuals can use to develop a local coordinated community response (CCR) approach to address elder abuse. By encouraging collaboration, a CCR strengthens communities through collective action to prevent, reduce and respond to elder abuse.

Who is this toolkit for?

  • Seniors centres
  • Community organizations
  • Police and victim services
  • Health service providers
  • Housing providers
  • Organizations servicing Indigenous, LGBTQ and new Immigrant communities
  • Anyone interested in addressing elder abuse in their community

You can request a copy of the toolkit here.

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.
