Logo BC Government"The Government of B.C. has developed an Information Kit to help older adults learn how to prevent abuse, recognize abuse when it happens, know how to respond and know where they can find assistance. These resources can also be used by organizations to host workshops or seminars to increase awareness about elder abuse in their communities."

Its Not Right"In 2009, the The Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children was asked by the Public Health Agency of Canada to adapt the Ontario domestic violence public education campaign, Neighbours, Friends and Families for abuse of older adults. The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse as well as professionals and passionate advocates from all over the country contributed to the development of the materials through a highly collaborative process over a year long period. The resulting INR-NFF materials represent the very best collective thinking in Canada for public education on abuse and neglect of older adults."
