The British Columbia Old Age Pensioners’ Organization was instituted in 1932 and incorporated in 1937. Our organization promotes all matters pertaining to the welfare of the elder citizens of BC.
It presents resolutions to various levels of government and its agencies on issues that have been voted on and passed by members at the annual convention.
This organization is concerned with all aspects of seniors’ lives, including, pensions, taxation, finances, health issues, home support, medicare and Pharmacare, housing and rental issues, social safety, abuse, neglect, fair treatment and loneliness.
In 1982 the B.C. Old Age Pensioners’ Organization established a Scholarship Society which provides scholarships to students in gerontology.
