Program Description


“Isolation and loneliness are the two leading causes of poor health in Canada for older adults and for young people alike. For seniors, social isolation is also a major risk factor for elder abuse and neglect.”

“There is no one way to celebrate. Over the years, we have seen activities ranging from community celebrations to readings in Legislature; rural organizations connecting generations with farming tools and practice; picnics and more! IG Day can be marked by everyone.”
