Candice Ashley Pollack is the Executive Director of the AGE-WELL National Innovation Hub Advancing Policies and Practices in Technology and Aging (APPTA). She divides her time at work about 60:40 between building policy partnerships and scribbling ideas on her 7-foot whiteboard. Her favourite part of her job is supporting APPTA in finding creative ways to influence and innovate Canadian public policy for the aging population.
Candice completed her Bachelor of Laws & Bachelor of Civil Law degrees at McGill University, and was admitted to the New Brunswick Bar in 2016. She is deeply passionate about human rights’ discourses. One of her greatest achievements was her work on the New Brunswick Provincial Strategy for the Prevention of Harm for Children and Youth (closely followed by her success in teaching her dog Oliver a repertoire of party tricks). She has contributed to published works on youth participation rights, children’s rights in a globalized economy, and child protection rights.
