Past Event: Advocacy Update and Input – September 26th, 2013

CARP is committed to enhancing the quality of life of all Canadians as we age by:

  • advocating for social change that will bring financial security, equitable and timely access to health care and freedom from discrimination;
  • ensuring that the marketplace serves the needs and expectations of our generation and providing value-added benefits, products and services to members; and
  • building a sense of community and shared values among our members in support of CARP’s mission

These basic tenants of our organization are referred to as the ABCs (Advocacy, Benefit, Community).  But what do they really mean?   Anthony Quinn, CARP’s Director of Community Development, will be available to answers all your questions on how CARP is making a difference in your life – whether you are aware of it or not.

CARP’s Annual General Meeting is in October and your Markham Chapter wants to find out what issues are important to you.  By giving us your input we can better serve you and our community.

The Chartwell Rouge Valley Retirement Residence has generously provided the venue and refreshments for the evening.  As a proud member of the Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT, they are known for their commitment to excellence in accommodation, support and service.  Amal Alarakhia, Rouge Valley’s Marketing Manager, will give a short presentation on the services that Rouge Valley offers and help eliminate the stereotypes surrounding retirement residences.  Did you know that the residences can be acquired for a week or more for vacation, periods of extra care or a restful place to get away from it all!

So bring a friend, network socialize and ask questions in this interactive information session – come and find out what CARP can do for you and what you can do for CARP!


When:  Thursday September 26th from 7:00pm to 9:00 pm

Location:  Chartwell Rouge Valley Retirement Residence, 5958 16th Avenue, Markham (just west of Markham Road) (Show on Google Maps)
