The Active Aging Society champions the physical, social, and mental health of older adults in British Columbia. We are guided by evidence to scale and sustain health-promoting innovations that work. For over a decade, we have provided solutions to keep seniors mobile and socially connected.
We need large-scale solutions that turn knowledge into action and we know that community partnerships are key to creating change. That is why a network of community-based organizations, researchers, community leaders, and delivery partners are central to our work.
We support seniors across British Columbia and beyond to become active and connected for health so that they can enjoy independent, mobile living.
WHAT WE'RE AIMING TO DO
Through Active Aging BC (ABC)– our signature initiative- we connect stakeholders in healthy aging across BC. We provide evidence-based health-promoting innovations, skills training and capacity building support for service organizations to improve the physical and mental health and social wellbeing of seniors.
ABC comprises two initiatives: Choose to Move and Active Aging Grants.
Over the next 5 years, we will expand the reach of the ABC across the province so that seniors may enjoy healthy lives to their fullest potential.
By 2025, we aim to reach 40% of B.C. seniors (350,000) through ABC.
