cover brief hocbrief fraudulentcalls mar2020The House of Commons Standing Committee on the Industry, Science and Technology held hearings in March 2020 (which is coincidentally Fraud Prevention Month) for a study on Fraudulent calls in Canada.

The Committee listened to a variety of stakeholders and individuals who spoke on the topic. We were honoured to present our brief to discuss how these fraud calls affect and specifically target older adults, and to outline some recommendations.

The brief was respectfully submitted to the Standing Committee by CNPEA's Board Member, Kate Schroeder.  A recording of the session can be watched here. A full report of the Standing Committee will be published at a later date.
