Human rights don’t get old

The basic human rights of older Canadians are challenged and undercut every day, and tragically, this has never been more true than over the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The basic human rights of older Canadians are challenged and undercut every day, and tragically, this has never been more true than over the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s estimated that 1 in 6 seniors globally are victims of elder abuse.

We, as a country, cannot allow this to continue.

This WEAAD (World Elder Abuse Awareness Day), CanAge, Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario, and Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse are teaming up to create a national conversation around elder abuse prevention and what you can do to uphold and protect the rights of seniors in your community.

Take action

On June 15th, we’re hosting a free national online event called ‘Aging with Rights: Ending Elder Abuse in Canada.’

This is the main event of WEAAD—a not-to-be-missed interactive experience that brings together a panel of experts, political figures, advocates and concerned people like you to engage in an inspiring discussion about how we, as a country, can end elder abuse and protect the rights of older people.

The event features an all-star lineup of speakers, including some very special guests. We’ll be announcing the lineup soon.

Make sure you secure your seat quickly, as space is limited (and share widely with your networks!)
