Issue #4: Research

There is very limited research to inform policy about elder abuse and neglect in Canada, despite its significant and growing incidence.

Recommendation #7: Academic Grants

Invest in academic and community-based research to better understand and respond to elder abuse and neglect. Provide sustaining funding to the National Initiative for Care of the Elderly (NICE) network (www.nicenet.ca) and others conducting research in the field of elder abuse and neglect.

Recommendation #8: Data Collection

Require federal, federally funded or federally regulated agencies to collect data related to elder abuse and neglect.

Recommendation #9: Disaggregated Data

Ensure that any federal, provincial, or territorial collected data about elder abuse and neglect is disaggregated to identify various racialized, gendered, and marginalized populations so that responses can be appropriately directed and invested. Publicize this data regularly so that it can be used widely as a basis for research and to grow awareness of the issue.
