You are invited to attend one of five public drop-in sessions on two projects: Advancing Age Friendly Edmonton and Edmonton Seniors Centres Strategy. For your convenience, the projects are hosting public engagement at the same time. These are separate projects, but you are welcome to participate in both.

These interactive drop-in sessions will provide the public a chance to learn about the projects, ask questions, identify priorities and validate next steps. Your input will help determine how the City is addressing age friendly priorities and supporting healthy ageing in Edmonton.

All the events are drop-in and refreshments will be provided. All ages are welcome because we are all getting older and a city that is friendly for seniors is a city that is friendly for all!
