Barbara McMillian (Community & Sector Development Coordinator, Healthy Aging, United Way of the Lower Mainland) and Annwen Loverin (Executive Director, Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre) shared their knowledge gained from the BC Summit on Aging and asked for input on building capacity amongst community-based senior serving organizations. Information was presented about the seven core seniors services identified by the Raising the Profile Project as needed in every community throughout the province as well as the systemic issues and gaps facing the seniors sector identified at the Summit on Aging. Coalition members provided input into a capacity-building knowledge hub planned to roll out this fall and heard how individuals and local organizations can sign on to the Declaration of the BC Community-Based Seniors’ Services Sector.
