The Seniors Advocate for the Province of British Columbia
The Office of the Seniors Advocate was established in 2014 as an independent office of the provincial government. It is the only office of its kind in Canada.
The Advocate is responsible for monitoring seniors’ services, promoting awareness of seniors’ issues and supports, and working collaboratively to identify solutions and make recommendations to government about system-wide issues facing seniors in key areas: health care, personal care, housing, transportation and income support. The Advocate issues regular reports, conducts surveys and travels around the province gathering feedback from seniors, stakeholders and the public.
