Elders and Seniors

Welcome to the Yukon Public Legal Education Association (YPLEA) information site for Yukon Seniors and Elders.


Our purpose is to increase awareness about the abuse and neglect of older adults and to expand knowledge about legal tools that can help to prevent and reduce the risk of such abuse and neglect. By discussing abuse openly we can create an environment where it can be recognized and addressed.
This site and the information is for seniors and elders, families and friends, community support workers, all health care professionals, police, clergy and spiritual advisors and anyone else who has contact with seniors and elders.
