WEAAD 2022:

Rights Don’t Get Old

 

rights dont get oldEvery year, on June 15th, we all join forces to remind the world that rights don’t get old. 

This World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), we’re inviting Canadians of all ages to become a champion of elder abuse prevention by pledging to stand up for the rights of older people. Our 2022 WEAAD campaign is focused on key actions you can take to prevent elder abuse in your community. 

All Canadians can:

  • Work with their community to make elder abuse a top priority
  • Learn to recognize signs of elder abuse
  • Know how to respond to elder abuse and refer seniors for help

All organizational leaders should:  

  • Include ageism prevention in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion practices


All elected officials and policy makers should:

  • Make their community age-friendly
  • Invest in elder abuse prevention

These recommended actions are from CNPEA's community engagement strategy Future Us: A Roadmap to Elder Abuse Prevention, which launched on March 24, 2022.

Together with our WEAAD partners CanAge, EAPO and BC CRN, we encourage you to ‘Take the Pledge’  on WEAAD.ca in the coming weeks. You can also downloads pledge cards and WEAAD logos from the same website. Share them freely online and with your contacts!
