04/03/2021 Virtual Event André Picard on “Neglected No More: The Urgent Need to Improve the Lives of Canada’s Elders in the Wake of a Pandemic”

Thursday, March 4, 2021 | 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. EST

This is an online event.

In Neglected No More, André Picard takes a hard look at how we came to embrace mass institutionalization, and lays out what can and must be done to improve the state of care for our elders, a highly vulnerable population with complex needs and little ability to advocate for themselves.

Picard shows that the entire eldercare system–fragmented, underfunded and unsupported–is long overdue for a fundamental rethink. We need to find ways to ensure seniors can age gracefully in the community for longer, with supportive home care and respite for family caregivers, and ensure that long-term care homes are not warehouses of isolation and neglect. Our elders deserve nothing less.

To thrive in a post-Covid environment, how will healthcare companies take a more nuanced approach to achieving long-term sustainability, growth, and patient centred care? How should policy makers, healthcare providers, and health system executives reassess how care is delivered, where providers should interact with patients, and how we should best procure supplies?

This is an online event

The 2021 National Liberal Convention will welcome thousands of supporters from across Canada for virtual policy discussions, special keynote speakers, innovative campaign training, and the election of the party’s next National Board.

Over the last decade, Liberal conventions have been hosted in Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, and Halifax – and our 2021 convention will be an exciting opportunity to connect and engage with Canadians all across the country, as we work together to keep Canada moving forward.

And we’ve got more good news: The Liberal Party of Canada’s National Board has also worked to keep registration fees low to encourage as many Liberals as possible to join from coast to coast to coast – including low fees for young Canadians, special early-bird discounts, and introducing a new early-bird discount for Indigenous attendees.

The Liberal Party of Canada acknowledges the privilege of the 2021 Liberal National Convention being hosted from the unceded traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinabek territory — and as we take part from coast to coast to coast, we acknowledge the ancestral and unceded territory of the Inuit, Métis, and First Nations.

Stay tuned for more details on the official convention program and our special guests!
