Community-Based Seniors’ Services are formally recognized as a sector that plays an essential role in supporting seniors’ independence, resilience and social connectedness.

The definition of the Community-Based Seniors’ Services (or CBSS) sector includes all municipal and not-for-profit organizations that provide services and programming for older adults at the local level -- at community centres, single-and multi-service agencies, seniors’ centres, community coalitions and neighbourhood houses -- throughout our province.

The seven core programs and services offered by the Sector reflects the diversity of British Columbia’s geography and seniors’ population and includes: Nutritional Supports; Wellness Programs; Physical Activity; Recreation, Education and Arts Programming; Information and Referral; Transportation; and Affordable Housing.
