Chapter Brochure

ABOUT CARP:CARP is a non-partisan national organization, advocating for the fair treatment of seniors across Canada.   Local chapters, staffed by volunteers, advocate for specific local community issues and also support national issues.

CARP activities are fun!  You will meet folks from your area, exchange ideas, discuss problems and find out what solutions others may have found for similar problems.
