What We Do
Seniors First BC is a community-based, non-profit organization incorporated as a society in 1994 as the BC Coalition to Eliminate Abuse of Seniors. Following an extensive needs assessment to establish the first Elder Law Clinic in BC, we changed our name in 2008 to the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support.
Who We Help
Seniors First BC works to prevent elder abuse across the entire province. We provide assistance and support to older adults who are, or may be, abused and those whose rights have been violated. We provide programs that educate, support and advocate on behalf of our clients.
