About

The Active Aging Society champions the physical, social, and mental health of older adults in British Columbia. For over a decade, we have provided solutions to keep seniors mobile and socially connected. 

 

We are guided by evidence to implement, scale, and sustain health-promoting innovations that work. To create healthy communities and healthy places to age well, we need large-scale solutions that turn knowledge into action.

 

We know that community organizations and leadership are key to creating sustainable change. The Active Aging Society values our network of community-based organizations, researchers, community leaders, and delivery partners. 

We support seniors across British Columbia and beyond to become active and connected for health so that they can enjoy independent, mobile living.

The Active Aging Society strives to ensure that the principles of equity and inclusion are embedded in all of our initiatives and operations. Through our work, we endeavour to build sustainable, meaningful capacity in communities so that they can continue to promote the health of older adults now and into the future.
