The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) Knowledge Sharing Project is a three-year initiative to support knowledge exchange amongst key stakeholders working in elder abuse prevention and response throughout Canada. The work will culminate in the creation of a national electronic hub for connecting service providers and seniors’ organizations. The hub will serve as a central point of contact for elder abuse information and resources across Canada.


The purpose of the event is to help identify the needs of stakeholders working with elder abuse and neglect issues, so we can ensure CNPEA develops a resource that is truly responsive to need. At this event you will:


1. Learn more about the Knowledge Sharing Project


2. Provide feedback on how CNPEA can best support your work


3. Connect with other stakeholders


We are asking participants to complete a stakeholder survey before or after this event. Here is the link to choose the French or English language survey: http://www.cnpea.ca/knowledge-sharing-project/stakeholder-consulation-survey/
