Meet our People
Our team is made up of a diverse mix of highly skilled and experienced professionals who are passionately committed to creating a brighter future of aging.
They bring their unique perspectives and lived experiences to the job, fuelling our mission to advance the rights and wellbeing of Canadians and creating real change on a daily basis.
Some of them have years of experience in the public sector. Some are trained academics and researchers. Some have dived head first into the world of advocacy having built their careers in the corporate world.
Despite all of these differences, we all have one thing in common—the desire to make a difference.
We believe in lifelong learning and creating a platform for people to grow at any level of their career.
CanAge is also home to a consistent flow of students who lend their deep knowledge to our work while gaining invaluable job skills and experience.
If you’re currently studying and want to get into the exciting world of advocacy, drop us a line! We’d love to meet you.
