The Chair recommends the book Contre l’exploitation des personnes âgées ou handicapées, by Maurice Drapeau

Themes: Book Chapter

Maurice Drapeau is a lawyer specialised in human rights who pleads at the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse. As part of his work entitled Contre l’exploitation des personnes âgées ou handicapées published in summer of 2014, the author bases himself on real situation experienced as part of his practice to show how the Charte québécoise des droits et libertés de la personne allows to protect older adults or disabled people against all forms of exploitation.

Strongly rooted in the practice, this work is for all the professionals of organisation working one way or another in the defense of rights such as: le Curateur public, le Protecteur du citoyen, les groupes de défense de droits, les Centres de santé et de services sociaux (CSSS), les comités d’usagers et les commissaires aux plaintes. It is also relevant for older adults and their relatives who wishes to learn more on their rights and the mechanisms allowing them to be respected.
