Active Aging in MB

Explore the Possibilities and Celebrate
Active Aging in Manitoba!

The Active Living Coalition for Older Adults in Manitoba (ALCOA-MB) is once again joining the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) in promoting Active Aging Week Sunday, September 25th–Saturday, October 1st, 2016. Active Aging Week is also a lead in to Seniors’ and Elders’ Month held throughout the entire month of October starting with Seniors’ and Elders’ Day, which is celebrated annually across Canada on October 1st. 

The 2016 theme is, “Explore the Possibilities”, which truly embodies the spirit of active aging and what it means to be an older adult in today’s society. With this attitude in mind, our goal is to connect people 50 years and older to age-friendly programs, events and services in their own communities that encourage them to live healthy active lifestyles!

The goal of this resource package is to help guide you in your own adventure and to help you and your  planning committee to encourage older adults in your community to participate in activities with people of their own age, ability and interests.

The guidelines are simple; events should be planned with older adult participants as the focus. Organizers at each host site will explore creative ways to invite, introduce and involve older adults in age friendly events and activities. Take this opportunity to encourage older adults to join in on the fun and experience what your group has to offer!
