June 4 2021 ……  from Murray Wall  

 

The Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan is an active member

of our National Retired Teachers association, ACER-CART. 

The stated priorities of ACER-CART include advocacy for the development and implementation

of National Seniors Strategy as well advocacy for regulations governing

Retirement and Long-Term Care Homes. 

These priorities are consistent with the aims of the Superannuated Teachers of Saskatchewan

as well as with resolutions passed at the 2021 STS Annual General Meeting.

 

ACER-CART is encouraging all provincial affiliates to participate

in a lobbying effort to utilize a prepared letter

to contact federal and provincial elected officials to specifically address

the needs of an increasing seniors’ population by developing and implementing

a National Seniors’ Strategy that would:

  • Value seniors
  • Prioritize care in seniors’ own homes
  • Implement  Pharmacare 
  • Regulate and monitor long-term care homes

A link to the letter is found at ACER-CART National Seniors’ Strategy – ACER-CART

 

We would invite you

to forward this to your Chapter members

and encourage them to support this initiative.

 

Thank you.

 

Murray Wall

Executive Secretary
