The Canadian Association on Gerontology is excited to announce the launch of the Age-Friendly Communities Hub, a new online networking and knowledge exchange platform to bring together stakeholders and to showcase the exciting Canadian work in this area.
About the Hub
The Hub was conceived and designed to raise awareness of age-friendly communities work in Canada and to bring together all stakeholders interested in this area. The Hub has a number of exciting components, all of which are accessible through the Hub website at http://afc-hub.ca:
- Showcase of Community, Researcher, and Student Profiles
- Blog of new happenings in age-friendly communities
- Resource and Stakeholder Inventories
- Events Calendar
You can also follow the Hub on Twitter and Facebook and join our mailing list.
The Hub has been designed to engage—so we encourage you to submit your own content for inclusion in the Hub: submit profiles for the Showcase, discuss upcoming projects in the Blog, submit your own content to the Resource and Stakeholder Inventories, and add your events to the calendar. Please see our guidelines for content submission.
The Age-Friendly Communities Canada Hub, the Canadian Association on Gerontology and the Public Health Agency of Canada are pleased to present our inaugural webinar:
April 10, 2014
1:00PM – 2:30PM EST
Registration is required — spaces are limited!
We hope you will find this a useful resource and we look forward to working with you to build the Hub. We would be most grateful if you would share this announcement with colleagues who have interest in age-friendly communities.
The Hub is funded by a Public Outreach Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and it is a partnership of the Canadian Association on Gerontology; the Centre on Aging, University of Manitoba; the Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging at McMaster University; the Nova Scotia Centre on Aging, Mount Saint Vincent University; the Public Health Agency of Canada; and many other community and governmental partners across Canada.
