About Us

 

Established in 2011, the Network is a group of NWT residents who advocate for older adult abuse awareness and prevention. The Network provides support, community workshops, information, and training to those committed to ending abuse of older adults in the NWT. We also discuss current events in our communities for older adults, plan for special events such as Seniors Citizens’ Month, World Elder Abuse Awareness Week, and share information on funding and training available.

Currently the Network has over 50 members, including:

  • Non-profit organizations
  • Service-providers
  • Aboriginal governments
  • GNWT Departments
  • Community members

– The Network also offers workshops and training to community members, service providers and older adults, empowering communities to stop abuse towards older adults. See the Workshops section for more information.

If you work with older adults, or are an older adult yourself, you likely have a lot to share and learn from others across the NWT. Let us know you’re interested by connecting with Suzette Montreuil, Executive Director of the NWT Seniors’ Society: ed@seniorsnwt.ca or 867-920-7444 (1-800-661-0878 toll free).
