Canadian Conference on Elder Law

The Canadian Centre for Elder Law Studies is hosting a conference on elder law at the Sheraton Wall Centre, in Vancouver, B.C. on October 29 and 30, 2005. The conference has attracted leading academics and practitioners in several disciplines. I am posting an extract from the Canadian Centre for Elder Law Studies website below:

The Canadian Conference on Elder Law is a public conference aimed at educating professional groups, lawyers, community members, advocates, health specialists, researchers and interested individuals on important legal issues relating to older adults. The goal of the conference is to promote contribution and access to a knowledge base pertaining to legal issues affecting older adults, with a view to reducing vulnerability, social isolation and abuse.

Presentations will consider such issues as elder abuse, aging with challenges, assisted living / supportive housing, aging in place, regulation of long term care facilities, private care agreements, consent, comparative analysis of interjurisdictional elder law issues, viatical / seniors' settlements, wills, estates, trusts, and reverse mortgages.

Registration information is also available here.
