On the Radar – Protecting older adults from abuse

On June 15 each year, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day draws attention to the abuse and neglect of older adults. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on this, with the widespread neglect and deaths in Ontario’s long-term care homes.
This month’s On the Radar from CLEO gives an overview of elder abuse and highlights some of the steps older adults and their families can take to protect their rights.

CLEO’s On the Radar – New online tool can help tenants with repair problems

Tenants who can’t get their landlords to do repairs might need to apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board to enforce their rights. This month’s On the Radar talks about Guided Pathways, a new online tool from CLEO that helps make the paperwork easier.

Use CLEO’s Guided Pathways to get online help to complete the Landlord and Tenant Board’s Form T6, Tenant Application About Maintenance. Tenants can use the T6 application if their landlord has not:
