It is an unfortunate reality that as seniors focus on their health amid the pandemic, con artists and scammers are looking to exploit their personal information and profit from these challenging times.
According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, more than 18,000 Canadians reported fraud in the first four months of 2020 – nearly half of the total number of cases for 2019. Canadians have lost $22.6 million to fraud.
Many of these scams target seniors directly. As Laura Tamblyn-Watts, the CEO of National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization CanAge said recently, the virus, combined with scamming attempts, represent “the perfect storm of targeting our vulnerable people.”
The purpose of the Qualicum Beach Seniors' Activities Centre is to:
Provide year round programs and activities to meet the recreational, cultural and social needs of the members
Provide settings in which seniors may feel at home among other members, where they can participate in activities suitable for them and develop a feeling of belonging
