I have forgotten my account password. How do I retrieve it?

Click Sign In, and then click the Forgot password? link. Enter your username or email address. We will send you an email containing your username and a link to reset your password.

How do I share resources, training opportunities, funding opportunities, and events?

The Healthy Aging CORE platform includes highly curated content. All resources, events, training opportunities, and funding opportunities are reviewed by our Content Managers before being displayed to the community.

Please note that only a few selected community programs will be featured here - for a complete listing of local programs please visit Alberta 211.

To submit new items to be shared, use the Add New button at the top of the page and fill out all the relevant fields. The CORE Alberta Team will then review your submission to ensure links, documents and images are working if attached. As a trusted knowledge hub, content should be accurate and recent. This is the same process if you wanted to share content in open CORE Groups

You can preview and edit your submissions by clicking My Profile at the top right-hand corner of the page and then viewing the Contributed Content listing that shows up on your profile. Pending Content will show you items that are still pending review to be published. 

How do I get my resource, event, or training featured in the CORE Newsletter?

We would love to highlight your resource, event, or training on our CORE Newsletter which has 850+subscribers. Trends show that events showcased through the Newsletter see enhanced registration numbers. Before we help with promotion, please do the following:

  1. 1. Create a CORE post (by clicking Add New on the homepage) filling out all the necessary details. We will then publish it on the site.
  2. 2. Send us an email request to be included in our CORE Newsletter. Depending on your event date or training and when our newsletters are released (twice a month) sometimes it might be too late to promote, but we can do a call-out within our own CORE networks. Please include the subject line: CORE Newsletter Event Promo Request – [Event Name].
