Roads to Safety: Legal Information for Older Women in BC

Description

Description

West Coast LEAF and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law are proud to present Roads to Safety, a legal handbook for older women in BC. Roads to Safety covers legal issues that older women may face when they have experienced violence. It explains rights and options, using stories to illustrate the legal information.

Older women often say they face many different types of legal challenges, and that it can be hard to find clear legal information that applies to their situation. That’s why this handbook was created. It brings together information about a wide range of legal issues:

  • Emergency information and safety planning
  • Decision-making rights
  • Immigration rights
  • Getting legal help
  • Income assistance
  • Applying for a pension
  • Applying for housing supports
  • Protection orders and peace bonds
  • Keeping grandchildren safe
  • Steps to protect yourself from financial abuse
  • Property division after separation
