Diversity and ageing: Honouring our identities
Thursday, June 24, 2021 - 12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.
Canada’s mosaic approach celebrates differences in culture, religion, gender identity, and sexual orientation. That diversity does not change as we get older, but our medical and legal systems sometimes take more of a homogeneous approach.
In partnership with the National Institute on Ageing (NIA), RBC Wealth Management and RBC Royal Trust are proud to present the latest segment of their collaborative discussion series on ageing, offering valuable and actionable insights for older Canadians.
During this 45-minute webcast, our panel will discuss how the right plan, people, and conversations can chart a course for safeguarding ongoing control and expression of your identity. Learn how these discussions, and the creation of an action plan, can ensure your intentions and wishes are realized throughout your life.
