Are you a committed, passionate person?

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference, educate, and help prevent elder abuse across Canada?

The Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) is looking to fill a few positions on its Board of Directors!


THE CNPEA is a registered charity that connects people and organizations to foster the exchange of reliable information relating to the prevention of abuse of older adults. The CNPEA is also committed to advancing programs and policy developments which aim to improve the lives of our aging population, at the local, regional, provincial/territorial and national levels. Please note: Our mission is awareness raising and knowledge-sharing.CNPEA is not an advocacy group or a direct service provider.

Our board is pan Canadian, and our Board members bring a wide array of backgrounds and expertise, ranging from health care, to social work, academia, non-profit and finance. Knowledge or direct experience with elder abuse prevention is welcome but not required, as the Board of Directors  oversees the governance, strategic planning and operations of the organization, in accordance with our mission, vision and strategic plan.

We are seeking candidates who are eager to provide leadership for a growing network and who are committed to enhancing  awareness and prevention of elder abuse in Canada. We are particularly interested in candidates living in PEI, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Nunavut, Yukon and Saskatchewan.

Board members are expected to:

Please note: All meetings are held via a web-based conferencing tool. Familiarity with these types of tools and an internet connection are required to participate.

Average Time Commitment
5-7 hours/month (committee and Board meetings are currently scheduled during the day). Board members will typically be elected for two-year terms (for a maximum of 6 consecutive years), so a two-year commitment to the organization is recommended. The CNPEA membership by regular motion may agree to some board position terms to be less than 2 years. Board member expectations include joining at least one committee.
