ACT Project

Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT) is a multi-methodological research project that brings together researchers and institutional and community partners to address the transformation of the experiences of ageing with the proliferation of new forms of mediated communications in networked societies. ACT is comprised of researchers, students, and community and institutional partners from around the world. Together, we are investigating how ‘digital ageism’ – the individual and systemic biases that create forms of inclusion and exclusion that are age-related – operates in subtle ways at this time. Through our collective and collaborative research, we provide an analysis that comes from our engagement with individuals and communities of elders and suggest strategies for change.

Respecting Elders: Communities against Abuse

RECAA is an organization founded by elders from Montreal’s cultural communities who work across age, gender and ethnic lines to raise awareness of elder mistreatment and to promote a culture of respect for all elders. We are united by a common goal: to work towards cultivating respect for elders within families and society. We want our children and grand children to grow up safe, strong and free. We see the necessity now more than ever to work amongst ourselves and with other community groups to combat the racism, ageism, sexism, and classism that touches our entire globalized world.
