Every year, on June 15th, we all join forces to remind the world that human rights don’t get old. This World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), we’re inviting Canadians of all ages to become a Champion of elder abuse prevention by pledging to stand up for the rights of older people.

CNPEA, in partnership with EAPOCanAge and the British Columbia Association of Community Response Networks (BCCRN) invite you to this national virtual WEAAD event on June 15th, from1:00 – 2:30 EST. We’ll be bringing together experts on aging and elder abuse, politicians and community members to discuss what we can all do to ensure older Canadians are safe from abuse and neglect. Speakers from across Canada will share their views and experiences, sparking social change, advocating for senior’s rights and combatting ageism.

Make sure you secure your seat, as space is limited! ASL interpretation will be provided.
