February 2015, Member of the Month, Mr. Murray Etherington,
Chair of CARP Mississauga, ON., Chapter
Murray has been a champion for important advocacy issues in his region, including the prevention of elder abuse, in his work with PEAPN and in his efforts on behalf of older workers.
The CARP Mississauga and Toronto downtown Chapters hosted a successful Work Reimagined Job Fair in 2014 and Murray and his team are spearheading a second event this April.
Murray has personal experience with the rights of older workers. He was downsized himself and works with businesses and government to alert them to issues of age discrimination and highlights the value of experienced, older workers.
The CARP National Office congratulates Murray on his efforts to support our mission to improve the lives of Canadians as we age.
