Victoria – B.C.’s seniors’ advocate, Isobel Mackenzie, is inviting seniors and their family members to meet with her on January 13, 14, and 19, 2015.

The advocate will discuss her role and the activities her office currently has underway, including a review of seniors’ housing in B.C. and the monitoring and analysis of various services to seniors.

She will also report on the range of concerns and issues she has heard from seniors across B.C. since she was appointed. The audience is invited to participate in questions and discussion.
