April 8 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
April 2021—In this webinar, we will review the efforts globally to develop a United Nations Convention on the Rights of Older Persons and consider how the rights of older persons in New Brunswick and Canada today can best be measured and enforced. A proposed annual measurement tool on the State of the Older Person and a policy lens to take older persons into account in policy development will be discussed.
