Early in the process we had a lot of data to analyze and retired seniors from across the country volunteered their help. They are too many to mention individually but their considerable help deserves both our thanks and public recognition.
Our coalition partners
Our coalition partners represent 5.2 million Canadians. In addition to the issue of depriving surviving spouses of pensions, they are also concerned about a range of things associated with that deprivation, such as the impacts on seniors’ health, caregivers, and women’s’ issues.
CBC Pensioners National Association
This association was the first coalition partner and deserves special thanks. From the very start they have been fully supportive and even provided the funding for a number of things, such as this website and its upkeep.
