Government of Canada supports the official launch of the United Way’s Healthy Aging CORE resource hub
On April 8th, 2021, Deb Schulte, Minister of Seniors, took part in a virtual event with the United Way of the Lower Mainland (UWLM) for the official national launch of Healthy Aging CORE (Collaborative Online Resources and Education), funded by $250,000 from the Government of Canada. This online knowledge hub will help organizations access resources, communicate, coordinate, collaborate and learn from one another so they can better serve seniors.
CORE knowledge hubs in British Columbia and Alberta have demonstrated their effectiveness in linking and strengthening the growing network of staff and volunteers engaged in non-medical programs and services for supporting independent living of older residents. The UWLM is using this federal investment to expand Healthy Aging CORE, strengthening supports for the healthy aging of seniors across the country. The funding was provided under the pan-Canadian stream of New Horizons for Seniors Program, a federal grants and contributions program whose goal is to support projects that help improve the well-being and quality of life of seniors.
