CNPEA welcomes the news of the appointment of the Honourable Filomena Tassi as the new Minister of Seniors. It is tremendously encouraging to see that the Canadian government has decided to make the fastest growing age group in the country one of its focuses at last. We look forward to collaborating with Minister Tassi to help guarantee that older adults live free from abuse and neglect.
