Section 5


The health and well-being of citizens across the lifespan must become the primary economic and social drivers to serve the best interests of our country today and for the generations to come.

Future Us has been developed as a pan-Canadian engagement strategy. The plan can become part of the national seniors’ strategy and complement related initiatives such as long-term care and dementia specific strategies. Relationships are the core of Future Us. This is legacy work that needs champions and leadership.

Future Us is envisioned to be:


in local communities across Canada.

Led by

non-profit elder abuse prevention networks at local, regional and national levels.

Financially supported

by three levels of government.

A community of diverse people standing together.

The proposed actions will:

  • Increase awareness of ageism at individual and system levels
  • Educate and engage citizens in activities that directly contribute to increased social support for older adults who may be victims of violence or neglect
  • Engage diverse communities in expansive dialogue
  • Tap into the wisdom that comes from lived experience and local expertise
  • Find and energize champions – reduce isolation inherent in social change work
  • Increase equity through relationship-building and commitment to ongoing dialogue
  • Build infrastructure of networks that connect us
  • Integrate funding through three levels of government
  • Sustain the work through election cycles
  • Mobilize knowledge - identify and do more of what is working
  • Coordinate and align communities and initiatives working toward prevention
  • Provide direct experience of achieving collective impact for the common good.
