Members of the Council of Advisers serve as key advisers to the Seniors Advocate and her office. Recommendations for council members were made by the Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of British Columbia (COSCO-BC) on behalf of the Advocate, after reviewing over three hundred applications.
The appointed council members bring perspectives from a variety of backgrounds. Among the group there are advisers with experience in social work, teaching, health care, business, and local government, to name a few. Advisers range in age from 65 to 85, live in 26 municipalities in all regions of B.C., and come from diverse cultures and communities.
