International Day of Older Persons

October 1 is a day set aside by the United Nations to celebrate the International Day of Older Persons.

In Canada the day is also referred to as <a href=””>National Seniors Day</a>.

CHF BC and our Aging-in-Place Committee host the Century of Co-operation Awards ceremonies on—or around—Octobers 1 each year.  It is one way that we acknowledge and celebrate all the ways older adults enrich our lives and our co-op communities.
