Initiative to Reinstate the Office of the Seniors Advocate

Carp Association of Retirees and Pensioners (CARP) Calgary

Since the abolishment of the Seniors Advocate, seniors-serving organizations have seen a surge in calls, requests and complaints from seniors and their caregivers. Seniors and senior-serving organizations are without a resource for fielding complaints and accessing much needed information, navigational tools and supports. The Canadian Association of Retired Pensioners (CARP), Calgary Chapter, has been leading an initiative to have the position of Seniors Advocate reinstated. Their open call for support is being circulated throughout Alberta to mobilize government action on this pressing need within the entire seniors-serving sector.
