 JUNE 1, 2020 UPDATE:
See the first virtual intergenerational quilt

Each year on June 1, we promote Intergenerational Day -
a celebration of the mutual benefits of building relationships across generations.

2020 marks the 10th Anniversary of Intergenerational Day in Canada.

Now more than ever, we need ways to connect. We need to celebrate. Just because we can’t be together, doesn’t mean we can't be connected. 

Calling Canadians of all generations Please help us build a virtual national quilt!

Using your creativity, please answer the question "what do intergenerational friendships mean to you?"
Send us an email and attach a picture of your drawing, sculptures, photos, inspirational notes etc. (high resolution, in jpeg or png format) to:   by Sunday, May 24th

Submissions will be compiled into a beautiful national quilt that illustrates that we are a diverse and unified country that is stronger together. The IG Day Quilt will be showcased online and celebrated across Canada on Intergenerational Day, Monday, June 1st 2020

Thank you so much for being a part of this collaboration!
