Change is possible. We all have a role to play. Are you ready?


CNPEA and partners are building a pan Canadian strategy to increase the prevention of elder abuse.

Our goal:
We are developing a Roadmap with multiple entry points to allow stakeholders and communities to figure out where they are and where they need to go to improve their approach to prevention. It will be designed to help you take action, anywhere you are in the country and in the system, and to work together as partners to address the issue early before it becomes violence.

Our partners
For the past few months, CNPEA has been hard at work on this project with the Centre for Research and Education on Violence against Women and Children (CREVAWC), Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario, the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE), CanAge, the Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL), Egale Canada, and the International Longevity Centre Canada (ILC Canada). We are also consulting with provincial and territorial stakeholders to inform the work. Watch for the launch of our strategy this Fall.

Get in touch with us:
We want to hear from you. Contact Bénédicte Schoepflin at  and Margaret McPherson at  to discuss this project.

This project is possible thanks to the support of the Department of Justice Victims' Fund.

Release of the Strategy: Winter 2022
