Improving the lives of seniors: elder action

As people who have the privilege of being part of communities of elders, we appreciate the wisdom, experience and vibrancy seniors contribute throughout their lives. We also recognize that, as people grow older, they face many issues including ageism, access to affordable and inclusive housing, social isolation, access to care and services, and mental health challenges.

Elder Action is a movement that anchors our Shannex Cares program and guides community partnership and investment decisions, advocacy agenda and other programs.

We support and develop programs and initiatives that create visible, meaningful opportunities for elders to be seen, heard and valued for their wisdom and talents and seek to dispel myths that seniors are disengaged with the world around them.

Join us in this work by becoming an Elder Ally.

How can we help you?

We are proud supporters of community groups that are helping elders live active and fulfilling lives at all ages. If you are an organization that supports seniors’ wellness, active living or social connections, we want to help.
