Event description

Description

Allies in Aging collaborates to connect seniors across our communities through leadership, outreach, transportation, training and advocacy. Projects are designed to connect seniors who are 75+ with people and services to reduce isolation due to disability, low income, language and cultural barriers.

Four lead agencies are working with more than twenty partners to bridge geography and organizational diversity through strategic alignment. Allies in Aging is a collective impact initiative funded in part by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program.

Our goal is to increase the number of seniors who:
  • have support and help when they need it - by having
  • someone they can count on to listen to them when they need to talk, to give them advice about a crisis, and to help them when needed.
  • participate regularly in activities
  • feel connected to family, friends and acquaintances


This session is a great opportunity for the volunteers and agency staff who are part of the Welcoming Spaces and Neighbourly Together projects to come together to exchange what they have learned about the issues of social isolation. Please join us from 9:30 - 10am for a light breakfast. A delicious lunch is also included in this free event.

Space is limited so please register early to avoid disappointment.

We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Musqueam (Muss-quee-em), Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh (tSLAY-wah-tooth) Nations.
