Raising Awareness and Addressing Elder Abuse in the LGBTQ Community Town Hall Meeting

Please join us as we explore Elder Abuse in the LGBT Community. This will be an afternoon of information and resource sharing for LGBT persons, service providers and those who wish to contribute to the conversation.

The Gerontology Research Centre at Simon Fraser University is leading a project focused on the issue of elder abuse within the LGBTQ community and will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, February 18 at SFU Harbour Centre Campus.

The afternoon will begin with an overview of Elder Abuse followed by a presentation of videos developed for the project in an intergenerational collaboration between Quirk-e and Youth for A Change designed to raise awareness and start the conversation about an issue not often considered within the LGBTQ community. 

Topics will include:

  • What does elder abuse look like in the LGBT community?
  • Who is at risk?  How can people protect themselves?
  • What help is available if someone is being abused?
  • Videos and fact sheets
  • Plenty of opportunity for discussion

2016 Silver Economy Summit

Nova Scotia is proud to bring together business and community leaders, academics and the public sector to discuss ways to address the challenges and opportunities of our aging population.

This year, we’re challenging the way we think about aging.  The summit will highlight ways to help seniors stay in their homes and communities longer while harnessing the skills of older workers in a new economy.
We will also examine age-friendly communities and civic engagement, travel and tourism, and how housing plays an important role in the economy as well as meeting the needs of an aging population. 
The Silver Economy Summit will be an inspirational event that strengthens our communities and helps make life better for seniors and their families. 

The Silver Economy Summit 2016 is hosted by the Town of New Glasgow and Province of Nova Scotia.
