CARP (formerly known as the Canadian Association of Retired Persons) is a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization that advocates for financial security and improved health care for Canadians as we age. With over 300,000 members and nearly 50 chapters across Canada, CARP plays an active role in the creation of policy and legislation that impacts older Canadians.
CARP operates under a unique business model. Through our affiliation with Zoomer Media, CARP has access to multiple media platforms. Advertisers interested in reaching CARP’s audience provide a full slate of benefits to members, often covering the cost of membership.
CARP works closely with all levels of government and collaborates with other organizations to advocate on health and financial issues. CARP uses the media and enlists members’ voices to increase its clout as an effective advocate.
CARP compte plus de 300 000 membres partout au Canada et notre objectif vise à développer un fort esprit de communauté et de solidarité parmi nos membres. CARP célèbre les gens de toute origine, et de tout genre, peu importe leurs valeurs, leurs aptitudes, leur situation familiale, leur âge, leurs convictions religieuses et leur orientation sexuelle.
CARP croit qu’une population vieillissante constitue un enjeu de société qui ne doit pas préoccuper seulement ceux qui atteignent un certain âge ou une certaine étape de leur vie. C’est pourquoi nous avons retiré l’exigence d’âge de 50 ans pour se joindre à notre organisation et que nous insistons sur la nécessité de créer des relations intergénérationnelles harmonieuses et positives. Nullement besoin d’être à la retraite pour devenir membre.
Advocacy is a key component of our mandate at CARP. As a grass-roots organization, we particularly value your input as CARP members. If you have a cause you believe we need to address, please tell us by filling out our Advocacy Cause Form here.
