Mission & Mandate


Work in partnership and collaboration with older adults and their families, caregivers, service providers, government departments and agencies, aboriginal organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and others to advance the goals and objectives of the NWT Network to achieve its vision.


The NWT Network will build and maintain relationships and support networks to eliminate abuse of older adults throughout the NWT. The document entitled Making Connections, Building Networks to Prevent Abuse of Older Adults – A Framework for Action (February 2011) serves as the basis of the NWT Network’s mandate. The document Leading the Way – The Work Continues: Planning for a Territorial Network to Prevent Older Adult Abuse (November 2011) will also guide the NWT Network and its work.
