Raising the Profile Project logo

In B.C. our population is aging, and at the forefront of providing services to this population are municipal and non-profit Community-Based Seniors’ Services (CBSS). CBSS provide a range of low-barrier programs and services to seniors in the core areas of nutritional supports; health and wellness; physical activity; educational, cultural and recreational programs; information, referral, and advocacy; transportation; and affordable housing.

The idea for the Raising the Profile Project (RPP) came from a workshop on senior centres at a conference with the Seniors Advocate in the spring of 2015.

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).
