I am happy to share that new benefits and increased credit payments are coming to help make life more affordable for older adults with the 2022 Fall Economic Statement that was announced this month.
The 2022 Fall Economic Statement builds on the investments we’ve made as a government to ensure everyone can earn a good living for a hard day’s work and live with security and dignity in their retirement years. New measured proposed include, making life more affordable and investing in jobs, growth, and an economy that works for everyone. As Minister of Seniors, I am committed to helping seniors age with security and dignity.
I am also committed to achieving a Canada free from gender-based violence and speaking up against harmful behaviours.
I would like to acknowledge International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25. Next month, it will be 33 years since the murder of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montreal. Every year, we must come together to remember these women and condemn misogyny, sexism and gender based violence in all forms. I encourage you to join me in recognizing the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence from November 25 to December 10.
November is also Fall Prevention Month. Anyone can fall, but as we age, our risk of falling becomes greater. The good news is that falls can be prevented. In this edition of my newsletter, you will find information on how to prevent falls by making changes to your home and lifestyle.
