TLN Media Group Launches Annual Elder Abuse Prevention Campaign

National Multilingual Public Service Announcements on TV and Digital

(Toronto, Ontario) July 6, 2020 – Now more than ever, seniors are in need of our support. Today TLN Media Group (TMG), Canada’s most influential multilingual media company, announced the launch of its annual month-long Elder Abuse Prevention Public Service Announcement.

TLN Media Group has produced three 30-second PSA messages in English, Spanish and Italian respectively. This multilingual and national campaign will be broadcast across the network`s family of TV channels including: TLN TV, Univision Canada and Mediaset Italia Canada, as well as the its digital platforms.

TLN Media Group is dedicated to the wellbeing of seniors across Canada and continues to serve the senior community with its accessible multilingual programming and community segment coverage. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, TMG has produced and broadcast over 200 daily community segments, many of them intended for senior audiences, in an effort to keep them safe, informed and engaged during this national health emergency.

One in five Canadians knows a senior who might be experiencing some form of abuse, according to Employment and Social Development Canada. Seniors from all walks of life are vulnerable to elder abuse and it is happening nationwide. Most cases are unreported due to fear, social stigma and the desire to protect the family member who is hurting the senior.

It is imperative everyone, including seniors, have access to helpful information to make informed decisions. As a media leader and member of ethnic communities for over 35 years, TLN Media Group recognizes it is especially critical to reach out to immigrant Canadians in non-official languages with important societal messages like this.

Join TMG in helping to protect our seniors. If you or someone you know is experiencing some form of abuse, report it by calling your local law enforcement or agency.
