National Advocacy

The national office's advocacy department focuses on issues of concern to the nation-wide membership. View our national advocacy activities here. 


Our Provincial Advocacy Officer

Brian Emdin, provincial advocacy officer, is the team leader on issues of local and provincial concern and carries out local activities on national advocacy issues.

The branch regularly receives invitations from various provincial government departments to participate in advisory forums on issues of importance to seniors.

Members are encouraged to contact us when they have issues that  they feel need to be addressed. Contact information is available on the contact us page.


Edmonton Branch Advocacy

Second VP David Riffel heads up the branch advocacy team. The Edmonton Branch, working with other seniors organizations in Alberta, has been a relentless advocate for the return of a provincial dental fee guide. We are please to have played a part in the advocacy that has led to the new, fairer guide that was recently announced by the provincial health minister to be effective on Jan. 1, 2018.
