We connect people and organizations, foster the exchange of reliable information, and advance program and policy development on issues related to preventing the abuse of older adults. We do this work at the local, regional, provincial/territorial, and national levels.
We envision and work toward a Canadian society where older adults are valued, respected, and live free from abuse.
We strive to be the Canadian leader in our field—sharing information and coordinating resources for the prevention of elder abuse.
