Financial Abuse - Finances

Financial abuse can take several forms, including limiting a person’s access to money or assets or hiding information regarding family finances. Taking money, and/or property, forging someone else’s signature on financial documents, or convincing someone to sign over finances or property to you (either immediately, or via a will or deed) through deception or coercion are all forms of financial abuse. The abuser may be a spouse, sibling, adult child of an elder, neighbor or extended family member. Laws are in place in Canada to protect any member of society from various forms of abuse, and this includes certain types of financial abuse. Do you have concerns about financial abuse within your own family or that of a loved one? Are you the victim of financial abuse, and wondering what your rights are? Or do you wish to report a person whom you think may be in need of help or protection, but don’t know who to call? Kinjunxion is here to help with empathetic and understanding sources of support and information.
