Financially Savvy Seniors (“FSS”) has as its’ main objective expanding awareness of elder abuse, with a particular focus on financial abuse.
Through leadership development and peer support based on retirement/financial literacy. Through this project, seniors will take the lead in working with the Project Coordinator to establish a support group where seniors can feel safe to discuss issues of concern, connect with subject-matter experts to increase awareness and understanding of available tools and resources. Launching in April 2018, the project will wrap up with a city-wide forum where all participants will share and showcase resources developed.
A project funded under the New Horizons for Seniors Program of the Government of Canada.
