Dear <<First Name>>,

November is Fall Prevention Month in Canada. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death, hospitalization and emergency department visits for older adults in Canada. Age-Friendly Communities across Ontario support fall prevention among older adults by creating safer outdoor and indoor public spaces and promoting active aging.

The video recording, PDF slides, and resources are now available for our recent webinar: Leading and Learning with Pride: City of Toronto’s Revitalized Tool Kit for Supporting 2SLGBTQI+ Seniors.

Join us for our upcoming webinars:

  • November 23: Developing a Council on Aging: Advancing your Local Age-Friendly Efforts from 12-1 p.m. Eastern. Register here.
  • December 7: Do Interventions to Reduce Ageism Work?  A Meta-analysis and review finds promising results from 12-1 p.m. Eastern.  Register here.

Keep reading for more age-friendly resources, including three funding opportunities!

Kind regards,
Emily Mullins
