Be a part of Mill Bay’s age-friendly workshop

Residents of all ages are invited to attend a workshop aimed at making Mill Bay more age-friendly.

An age-friendly community meets the varied and changing needs of adults aged 55 and up, allowing them to comfortably and safely age and remain active within their neighbourhoods. Age-friendly communities are also accessible for those living with disabilities or using strollers so the conversation is open to all.

The CVRD is inviting local residents, business owners and stakeholder to attend a “World Cafe” style session, to share their ideas about how Mill Bay can become more age-friendly and accessible.

The “World Café” is a conversational process in which participants will be asked to discuss a set of questions, focused on the specific goals of an age-friendly action plan for Mill Bay. The input gathered will help to make the Mill Bay community more inclusive for all.

Anyone interested in the June 22 workshop are asked to RSVP to by June 12. The session runs from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Mill Bay Community League Hall at 1035 Shawnigan Lake Rd.
