Alberta’s new Seniors Advocate, Sheree Kwong See, will help bring the issues and concerns of seniors to government.
Kwong See has worked on behalf of seniors as an educator, researcher and policy expert for more than 25 years.
She is a psychology professor at the University of Alberta and holds a PhD in experimental psychology with a specialization in aging. Kwong See is an expert on the physical, cognitive and social aspects of aging and has studied the impact of ageism as a factor in elder abuse. She was appointed Seniors Advocate after an open competition process and will serve until Dec. 31, 2019. The Seniors Advocate works with seniors to resolve a wide variety of issues. The advocate also advises government on trends and systemic issues that concern seniors and their families.
“Sheree Kwong See is a strong voice for seniors in our province. Our government is committed to providing Alberta seniors with an advocate who listens and resolves issues on behalf of seniors.”
