About CCEL

Our History

The Canadian Centre for Elder Law (“CCEL”) is a national, non-profit body dedicated to exploring the particular legal issues which affect older Canadians.

Law Institute, first began studying issues of “elder law” in 1999 when, with support from the Law Foundation of British Columbia, it began project work on Private Care Agreements and Financial Arrangements: Loans and Guarantees between Family Members and Friends. Out of this and other Law Foundation supported initiatives came the growing realization of the need for a formalized Centre dedicated to legal issues of concern to older adults.
