Abuse of older adults is a serious issue in Canada. Over the years, project investments to address the issue have been made by different levels of government. It's Not Right! is one example. A pan-Canadian approach can help align and build on these investments to improve our current state.

Prevent Elder Abuse Manitoba (PEAM) is a partnership of Manitoba-based organizations. The Network’s goals are: to act as a central point of contact for provincial efforts, to support regional and community initiatives to prevent abuse of older adults and to raise public awareness of elder abuse throughout the province.
The Manitoba Government website has a strategy and provides information about elder abuse.
The website includes helplines, links to Prevent Elder Abuse Manitoba and other legal and personal resources.
