We are excited to share the 2021-22 Healthy Aging Year in Review which tells the story of another transformative year and how the Community-Based Seniors' Services (CBSS) sector continued to provide support for older adults in British Columbia to stay active, connected, and engaged.
As COVID-19 restrictions began to lift, services and programs offered by Healthy Aging initiatives could shift back to in-person programming - what a wonderful feeling it was to finally be back together! With 335 programs offered by 188 agencies, we were able to serve 34,282 older British Columbians.
This Year in Review also includes impactful Healthy Aging program developments and expansions, updates to our Community Engagement work and Sector Strengthening programming, 2021-22 financial investments, and other exciting highlights and news from the past year. We've also included a snippet of the work already underway this year, including highlights from the Provincial Summit on Aging which took place in April 2022.
Thank you to all our friends and partners in the CBSS sector, who, through our shared values, came together to collaborate, co-create, and unite to ensure older adults across the province to remain safe and supported.
