Parkdale’s Celebration of International Day of Older Persons

The United Nations International Day of Older Persons is celebrated by raising awareness about issues affecting the elder. It is also a day to appreciate the contributions that older people make to society.

The theme for 2017 is “Stepping into the Future: Tapping the Talents, Contributions and Participation of Older Persons in Society.”

This year’s day is about enabling and expanding the contributions of older people in their families, communities and societies at large. It focuses on the pathways that support full and effective participation in old age, in accordance with old persons’ basic rights, needs and preferences.


Hosted by: Seniors for Change, Parkdale Community Legal Services, Parkdale Community Information Centre and Kababayan Multicultural Centre.
