silverfox photo3Over the course of two trade shows (the OLTCA's Together We Care Convention and Trade Show, and Advantage Ontario's 100th AGM and Convention), the wonderful Silver Fox Pharmacy team raised $1,000 for CNPEA. 

Silver Fox staff hosted a bracelet-making station at their booth during the events: conference participants could make a bracelet to take home for each bracelet made, Silver Fox donated $1 to CNPEA. Fun, creative and philanthropic!

To everyone who participated and made a bracelet in our name, to Josh Cole and his fantastic team, a huge thank you, this generous donation is truly appreciated by all of us here at CNPEA.

WHAT IS INTERGENERATIONAL DAY?

Intergenerational Day was initiated in 2010 by i2i Society and 5 student groups from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba & British Columbia, with the financial support of the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Intergenerational Day was born in 2010, out of the momentum created by World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). Isolation and loneliness are the two leading causes of poor health in Canada for older adults and for young people alike. For seniors, social isolation is also a major risk factor for elder abuse and neglect. The purpose of IG Day, as it is often referred to, is to illustrate and honour the richness of intergenerational partnerships through varied initiatives and to encourage connections and understanding between age groups, as a prevention approach and a way to encourage all-ages-friendly communities.
To date, 12 provinces and territories and over 100 cities have officially recognized the day with 3 provinces (ON, MB, NB) and the Toronto District School Board proclaiming it by law, in-perpetuity. This year, larger celebrations are taking place at a city-wide level in Toronto, Calgary, and Ottawa.

i2i Intergenerational Society is a volunteer not-for-profit organization that assists individuals and organizations in pursuing respectful and purposeful Intergenerational connections through innovative initiatives and helps share promising intergenerational practice in Canada. A decade of practice with the Meadows School Project (between 2000 and 2010) is the research that informed our purpose.

The committee will release a final report, with recommendations, that will propose steps that the Government of Canada could take to help address these challenges. During the study, the committee will examine challenges faced by older women, including, but not limited to:
