EAPO – Annual Provincial Conference

March 29 @ 6:00 am - 9:30 am

Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario is excited to host our 2022 Virtual Provincial Conference on Tuesday, March 29. The conference theme, Amplifying Our Collective Voices: Rights Don’t Get Old, focuses on raising awareness and uniting stakeholders in strengthening our messages on the prevention of elder abuse, combating ageism and promoting the rights of older persons.

Author, journalist, and activist Ashton Applewhite will be the opening keynote speaker to kick off the conference. Ashton is a leading international voice for a movement to mobilize against discrimination on the basis of age. Several publications recognize her work as an expert on ageism, including the American Society of Aging. She is also the author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism and known for her Ted Talk on ending ageism.

We invite you to attend the conference to learn about the global and national movements taking place and how you can TAKE ACTION to make a difference in your community. Our cast of renowned speakers will inspire you with the knowledge to address ageism, understand the human rights of older persons, and prevent elder abuse.
