Need Help Now?
The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse has a list of resources and supports for each Province and Territory. Find help here.
If you or someone you know is being abused or neglected, help is available. Whoever you are—a concerned bystander, an overwhelmed caregiver, or a person experiencing abuse—you can take the first step now to get the support you need.
If you make a phone call and the line is no longer in service, or if you reach someone who isn’t helpful, don’t give up. Try again. Try another number. Look for someone else to talk to.
You can choose what kind of support feels right and what to do next. If you want information but are not ready to take action, you can choose not to give your name.
