This workshop will build on the success of the 2011 session where we talked about these important issues impacting seniors today:

• Outdoor spaces and buildings

• Transportation

• Civic participation and employment

• Social participation

• Respect and social inclusion

• Housing

• Communication and information

• Community and health services

Refreshments will be provided.
