National Advisory Council on Aging (Canada)

From the NACA web site: "NACA's primary function is to offer advice to the Minister of Health. The Council interprets this as providing well thought out, timely and sensible recommendations to current and upcoming issues and activities that reinforce the Council's advisory capacity.

In fact, NACA is commissioned to:

* review the needs and problems of seniors and recommend remedial action;

* maintain contact with national, provincial and local associations, institutions and groups involved in aging or representing seniors;

* distribute information;

* publish reports; and

* stimulate public discussion on aging.

The Minister of Health is not NACA's only client. Often, NACA addresses issues or conducts activities that fall within the purview of other stakeholders."
