What We're Doing in the Wood Buffalo Region

The Wood Buffalo Senior Resource Committee is an interagency group that meets monthly to promote and support initiatives to meet the needs of senior citizens. One of the many tasks of the committee was to update and relaunch the Elder Abuse Awareness Guide on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15, 2009. The guide was reproduced to raise awareness of elder abuse, to provide resource information, and to engage agencies in responding to elder abuse issues.

The following partners were involved:
  • RCMP
  • Victims Services
  • Prevention of Family Violence & Bullying Coordinator

Elder Abuse response within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is coordinated through the RCMP
