Motion M-106 Seniors

I am particularly humbled and proud to share with you that on May 17, 2017, my Private Member’s motion was successfully carried in the House of Commons. On June 6, 2017, the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (also known as HUMA) began a 10-meeting study on developing a National Seniors Strategy. Committee meetings commenced in the fall 2017. Information on their progress will be shared when available.

Introduced in the House of Commons on December 6th, 2016.  M-106 calls on the federal government to develop Canada’s first National Senior Strategy.  This motion seeks to improve the quality of life for all seniors across Canada.

My objective is to provide you with some key facts and statistics that demonstrates why an increased focus on the policy outcomes related to seniors is needed.

Your support will be instrumental in showing our government how very important this topic is for all Canadians. I have attached a template support letter for your convenience, please feel free to tailor it as you see fit: M 106 template letter of support.ENGdocx I will include your endorsement on my website and will endeavour to reference it during my speech in the House of Commons time permitting.
