Seniors Engagement Workshops

Senior Engagement Workshop

The Seniors Engagement Committee of the City of Charlottetown is launching a series of engagement workshops to obtain input and feedback from the senior and near senior population. The feedback collected will be used to assist in the development of an action plan for an age-friendly city for Charlottetown. An age-friendly community is one where policies, services, and structures are designed in particular to support and enable older people to live in a secure environment, enjoy good health, and continue to participate fully in their communities.

The Committee will be hosting three COVID-19 safe public consultations, two pop-up consultations and will receive feedback online and in writing through a survey.

The in-person engagement workshops are currently scheduled for:

Monday, November 1st from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Malcolm J. Darrach Community Centre, 1 Avonlea Drive

Wednesday, November 3rd from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at West Royalty Community Centre, 1 Kirkdale Road

Thursday, November 4th from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Holy Redeemer’s Jack Blanchard Family Centre, 7 Pond Street

Pre-registration is required. To register, please call 902-368-1025 or email [email protected]. Participants of the in-person engagement workshops must be fully vaccinated and bring proof of vaccination and a government photo ID to the session.
