National Pensioners Federation is a national, not for profit, non partisan, non sectarian organization of 350 seniors chapters, clubs, groups, organizations and individual supporters across Canada with a collective membership of 1,000,000 seniors and retirees devoted entirely to the welfare and best interests of ageing Canadians.
Our mission is to stimulate public interest in the welfare of aging Canadians. Our goal is to help seniors and retirees have a life of dignity, independence and financial security. We accomplish this through educating our members and the general public on issues such as:
- Health Care
- Social Programs
- Elder Abuse
- Affordable Access to Information
As well as presenting policy position briefs to the Federal Government based on the resolutions and discussions at our Annual National Convention we lobby Federally for improvements to all things concerning seniors and retired workers.
