This project explores the key role played by non-profit organizations in Montreal that supported older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal is to document and to analyze the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic on this sector, and assess their future role and needs as they head into a post-pandemic world. It explores the ways in which the non-profit sector is positioned to mitigate the impact of the pandemic by supporting older people in order to reduce social isolation and foster wellbeing. What insights from the pandemic “experience” can be mobilized to strengthen this vital sector in Quebec’s socio-economic recovery, to better service older people and this non-profit sector?
