As Canada’s Veterans and a significant segment of the Canadian population age into their senior years, there is a need to ensure programs, services and supports are in place to address the issues and challenges that face our aging population. The Royal Canadian Legion is actively involved in seniors issues and advocates for their care and support.
Primary advocacy position(s) on this issue:
- The implementation of a national Seniors Independence Program in Canada would assist seniors to live independently in their own homes and communities for as long as they are able. This will alleviate the current stresses on an already overburdened system with an increasing senior demographic.
