By Barb Hood, Executive Director NWT Seniors Society

From June 1st to 30th, the Northwest Territories will be honouring and recognizing the seniors in our families and communities. This is the 17th year that the Northwest Territories Seniors' Society has celebrated the contribution, wisdom and experiences of older adults in the NWT. Just a few days ago, Glen Abernethy, Minister Responsible for Seniors, publicly recognized June as Seniors Citizens' Month, June 1 as Intergenerational Day, and June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (full speech available here).

The NWT Seniors’ Society appreciates the support of all community groups, governments and individuals who are recognizing and supporting older adults in their communities in the NWT during the month of June.  This is truly an exciting time and we are so grateful for those individuals who celebrate Intergenerational Day, June 1 and World Elder Abuse Awareness Days, June 15.  We join with our colleagues and supporters across the country in recognizing older adults:
