AEAAC Our Story- 20 years in 2022

 The AEAAC was first formed in 2002, since that time we have undergone a name change, developed a new logo, developed resources, hosted several learning events, and became a non-profit society. What has never changed in that time is our dedication to raising awareness and addressing elder abuse.

Our Vision: Alberta’s older adults are valued and live free from abuse.
Our Mission: We are a council of Albertans dedicated to increasing awareness and supporting community responses to elder abuse.

Our Values

Our belief is that no one organization has a broad enough scope to address the complex issue of elder abuse in its entirety. A truly effective community response involves many stakeholders working in collaboration.
