What is Réseau FADOQ?

March 29, 2012
Réseau FADOQ is proud to give its members access to the Accès-Lobe hearing health program.

Réseau FADOQ is nothing less than Canada’s largest association of individuals 50 years of age and over and the expert in issues of quality of life for seniors.

Qu’est-ce que le Réseau FADOQ ?Founded in 1970, the Fédé-ra-tion de l’Âge d’or du Québec expanded rapidly across the province. Now called Réseau FADOQ, the organization has no fewer than 265,000 members, 834 clubs, 16 regional chapters and over 9,000 volunteers. The Board of Directors is made up of senior volunteers and chaired by Jean-Claude Grondin.

Its primary mission is to help improve the quality of life of those 50 and over. To do this, Réseau FADOQ takes action on a number of fronts:

  • It provides a wide range of serv-ices, programs and activities to ensure that seniors enjoy good health and personal fulfillment as they age. With golfing, cycling, curling, walking groups, the FADOQ Games, computer workshops, mentoring and other activities on tap, there’s something for everyone.
  • It continues to step up its efforts in the public arena to protect the rights of people over 50, including advocating for enhancing the Guaranteed Income Supplement and recognizing the value of experienced workers. It also develops targeted programs aimed at enhancing living conditions in seniors’ residences and preventing elderly abuse and fraud, and even sits on a UN (United Nations) committee working to create an international convention on the rights of seniors.
