Knowledgeable Estate Litigators Representing Elderly Clients in Toronto and throughout Ontario

Canada is experiencing an unprecedented demographic change. It has been estimated that by 2041, one-fourth of Canada’s population will be over the age of 65. At the same time, many Canadians are living and working longer and longer. As the “baby boomer” generation moves into its senior years, elder law issues associated with this changing landscape are increasingly coming to the forefront.

Elder Law is a legal term which encompasses those practice areas that address matters affecting the aging population and includes ensuring the legal and financial interests of older individuals are secure, as well as steps taken by supportive family and relatives to ensure that the interests of their loved ones are protected.

Compassionate Lawyers Assisting with Elder Abuse and Fraud

Older individuals are disproportionately vulnerable to abuse.  One in five Canadians believes they know a senior who may be experiencing some form of abuse. The most common forms of elder abuse are physical, psychological, and financial, with financial being the most frequently reported.  Elder abuse is any action by someone who is in a relationship of trust, which results in harm and/or distress to an older individual. Elder abuse can also include neglect, which is lack of action by someone who is in a relationship of trust that results in harm and/or distress to an older individual.
