The Chair received a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to start a new research project

It aims more specifically to:

  1. “Identify the specific nature of volunteer action to counter material and financial mistreatment of older adults;
  2. Identify and describe the determinants of this action;
  3. Better understand the experience of the older adult supported by a volunteer;
  4. Determine the emerging practices of volunteer action to counter material and financial mistreatment of older adults.”

Leader of this project, the Chair is assisted by five Quebec co-researchers with recognized expertise in this field: Andrée Sévigny of the CHU de Québec Research Centre, Hélène Carbonneau and Julie Fortier of the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières, as well as Sophie Éthier and Christyne Morin of Laval University.

We wish them continued success in the future!
