Global News - March 25, 2022: Seniors in N.S., across Canada, targeted in growing number of ‘devastating’ scams
Recognizing that there’s a lack of knowledge and awareness about many of the pitfalls of moving – be they financial, emotional, and physical – the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM), the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) and Organize Anything teamed up to present 2022's “Moving Seniors Safely Week.” This event is designed to provide education and tools for not only older Canadians, but their adult children and friends as well. Driven by the desire to set Seniors and Zoomers up for success, these organizations will be sharing their collective wisdom via panel discussions, webinars, handouts, podcasts, interviews and live question and answer opportunities and other useful resources.
