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.

Values and Principles

Collaboration and Coordination - We provide opportunities for knowledge-sharing to build the capacity of Canada to respond to and prevent the abuse of older adults.

Respect and Inclusivity - We respect older people’s rights and autonomy. We celebrate diversity in all its forms.

Credibility and Accountability - We are accountable to hub users that we will only disseminate evidence-based research, information, and current/promising approaches to inform program and policy development.

Innovation - We seek and promote new and creative approaches.

Our Structure

The network is led by a pan Canadian board of directors who each bring their passion and varied expertise. The network has a membership of individuals and organizations from across Canada who come from all walks of life and who care about older adults and the prevention of harm in later life.
