Status of Women committee  I will defer I think to my colleague Carmela. I have been in my position exactly two days. I'm here more as an observer than anything else. I'm honoured to be here and to be representing DAWN, but I think I'll give the floor to Carmela. She's very eloquent and she'll finish well

Human Resources committee  Thank you for your question, and I thank Mr. Lessard for the question earlier. As I said, the poverty act in Quebec I know works in some contexts.

We thank the Status of Women committee for inviting us to present today in this dialogue about the impact of elder abuse on women with disabilities and deaf women in Canada.

Status of Women committee  I'm sorry. Thank you. The current policy framework cannot adequately provide for the support and financial needs of aging people with disabilities.
