Celebrate the International Day of Older Persons with us!

Join us on October 2, 2015 for an afternoon of food, music, awards and information.

The Valued Elder Recognition Award (VERA) nominees will be presented during the event. The VERA presentation will be first on the program, followed by tea and refreshments. Next, the Canadian Driving Research Initiative for Vehicular Safety (Candrive) panel will take the stage to discuss the background and results of the study. They will give insight as to why this research on improving the safety of older drivers is so important for the public, the province, and the rest of Canada.

On 14 December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly designated October 1st the International Day of Older Persons. This year, we are celebrating this important day on October 2nd.
