A note from Age-Friendly Calgary:

Seniors’ Week offers more this year.

June 5 to 11 is Seniors’ Week. Recognized annually across Alberta, Seniors’ Week is an opportunity to show appreciation for older adults and the many contributions they make to our communities through volunteerism, assisting charities and by supporting family members and friends.

Whether or not you choose to attend one of the official Seniors’ Week events, Age-Friendly Calgary encourages you to celebrate aging in your own way. Help spread awareness within your networks by using the social media hashtags #seniorsweek and agefriendlyyyc.
