Senior Organizing Project

Chinese seniors are a fast-growing visible minority group in Canada, whose marginalization within the Chinese community is compounded by ageism. Our Senior Organizing Project aims to empower Chinese seniors, including those from low-income, working class, (im)migrant, and precarious immigration status backgrounds.

By working together, we hope to 1) improve our community’s understanding of barriers faced by marginalized Chinese seniors, 2) improve our capacity to support marginalized Chinese seniors, and 3) strengthen community organizations’ capacities to serve Chinese working seniors in the GTA. Through direct outreach, organizing meetings, justice-based workshops, and campaign involvement, we aim to work alongside Chinese seniors to create systemic change that benefits all.

As part of our Senior Organizing Project, CCNCTO and members support many policy changes that align with our Worker Organizing Project, including campaigns such as Status for All, fairer labour laws including paid sick leave and raising the minimum hourly wage. ​Our goal in organizing seniors is to build a thriving, connected, and empowered Chinese senior community in the long term.

华裔长者是加拿大快速增长的明显少数群体,他们在华人社区中的边缘化因年龄歧视而加剧。 我们的长者组织项目旨在增强华裔长者的能力,包括来自低收入、工人阶级、移民和不稳定移民身份背景的长者。

通过共同努力,我们希望 1) 提高社区对边缘化华裔长者所面临障碍的理解,2) 提高我们支持边缘化华裔长者的能力,3) 加强社区组织为大多伦多地区华裔工作长者服务的能力。 通过直接外展、组织会议、基于正义的研讨会和参与活动,我们的目标是与华裔长者一起创造造福所有人的系统性变革。

作为我们长者组织项目的一部分,平权会(CCNCTO)和成员支持许多与我们的工人组织项目相一致的政策变化,包括人人有身份等活动、更公平的劳动法(包括带薪病假)和提高最低工资。 ​我们组织长者的目标是长期建立一个繁荣、互联、赋权的华裔长者社区。
