    "Elder investors - vulnerable investors- persons with fluctuating or diminished mental capacity and adults are subject to undue influence or financial exploitation. 

    Financial Advisors and the investment industry are key players in the detecting and reporting of elder financial abuse, and other forms of undue influence or abuse. But as the law stands, these financial planners and investment advisors cannot reach out about their concerns without breaching privacy law.   

    This webinar will raise awareness of these concerns, and provide recommendations the investment industry can take to create positive steps to address these issues.The speakers will highlight their recommendations on training, standardized conduct protocols, reporting, privacy, liability protection, and awareness raising.

    Join this dynamic and interactive webinar, as part of Vulnerable Investor and Safe Harbour Project between FAIR Canada and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law."
