Speech from the Throne promises wins for Canadian seniors
CanAge welcomes announcements made in yesterday’s Speech from the Throne, and the government’s commitments to older Canadians. We especially applaud proposed national standards for the long-term-care sector across the country, recognition of the need to have elder abuse and neglect included in the criminal code, a new Canadian disability benefit, and acceleration of universal pharmacare. “Older adults have been waiting for improvements particularly in LTC residences; unfortunately it took COVID-19 and hundreds of deaths to get federal attention,” says Laura Tamblyn Watts, CanAge president and CEO. Improvements were also proposed to tax filing, more support for personal support workers, and immigration to the aged care sector.

VOICES of Canada's Seniors Webinar Series
The launch of the online series "VOICES of Canada's Seniors - A Roadmap to an Age-Inclusive Canada" will commence on October 2nd. Sessions around an age-inclusive Canada will continue throughout the first week of October.
The Roadmap provides 6 compass points (V.O.I.C.E.S.) for areas of attention. Under each compass point, we map critical issues that affect older Canadians. We provide recommendations and practical steps with the aim of improving the lives of Canadians now and in the future.
Join us for this free online event as our panel of experts in the field of aging discuss each compass point relative to making Canada more age-inclusive. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, these discussions and courses of action are more vital than ever before.
Be part of this important webinar series.

Introducing CanAge’s first publication: Voices of Canada’s Seniors: A Roadmap to an Age-Inclusive Canada. As Canada’s population continues to age, we must move forward as a country to address these pressing needs. This Roadmap for an Age-Inclusive Canada is part of that needed work.
Canada requires a new plan. A new paradigm. A new way forward. We at CanAge hope that VOICES of Canada’s Seniors: A Roadmap to an Age-Inclusive Canada can assist our communities, working together with stakeholders and governments, to forge a new road ahead. A road of purpose. Vitality. Health. Connection and well-being.
It’s time to listen. It’s time to amplify.
It’s time to act on the VOICES of Canada’s seniors.
