The District of Kitimat along with B.C. Healthy Communities will be hosting three age-friendly focus group sessions in October.
“We would like to extend an invitation to local agencies, community service providers and local business owners to take part in the upcoming Kitimat Age-Friendly Dialogue to Action Workshops,” said District of Kitimat Age-Friendly project co-ordinator Nanci Warren.
She said the focus group sessions will be led by BC Healthy Communities with seniors, community partners and stakeholders that have shown an interest in taking the Age-Friendly dialogue to the next level.
“Our goal is to gather, have key discussions based on survey results and brainstorm on how we move forward in taking actions that make our community more age-friendly,” said Warren.
“These results will drive the priorities that will be included in the age-friendly action plan that will be presented to mayor and council.”
The first and second sessions will be held in the Riverlodge activity room, on October 25, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The third session will be held on October 25 from 6 p.m. to 7.30p.m. in the Kitimat Library meeting room.
Anyone interested in attending can collect a form from the Snowflake Seniors’ Centre or the District of Kitimat offices in the City Centre Mall. The deadline for submission of completed forms is October 12. For more information contact Warren by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 604-992-7446 or 250-632-8900 ext 2261.
