Two new articles published in the nouveaux articles published in the Canadian Review of Social Policy

Marie Beaulieu and collaborators published an article entitled Moving forward : Prevention of abuse of older women in the port-migration context in Canada in the Canadian Review of Social Policy. The article addresses the conclusions of a project aiming to elaborate a common research program in the field of preventing violence towards older immigrants of Canada. The project was based on the review of the existing literature on the different forms of violence perpetrated towards older adults and immigrants, local meetings with key actors from seven provinces, a public event held in Toronto, as well as a symposium bringing together provincial practitioners.

This article analyses the relevant sociopolitical contexts, inherent to the two themes addressed; which are the importance of inter-sectorality and the reduction of older female immigrants’ vulnerability to mistreatment to maximise their resilience.

Finally, Marie Beaulieu has co-signed the editorial of this special edition, addressing aging, entitled: “Les forces et les faiblesses des politiques du vieillissement au Canada” (Strengths and flaws of aging policies in Canada) .
