Alberta Seniors' Week 2023 is June 5 – 11!
Alberta Seniors' Week is June 5 - 11, 2023! The Town of Okotoks is the provincial host site for the 2023 launch of Seniors' Week and will be kicking it off with an event on June 5.
Seniors’ Week has been recognized since 1986 to celebrate and recognize the contributions seniors make to enhance the quality of life in Alberta. Seniors’ Week was inspired by the vision of the late Alice Modin. More than 30 years ago, Modin began a campaign to start a seniors’ day in Strathcona County that helped pave the way for Seniors’ Week.
Many communities throughout Alberta officially declare Seniors’ Week each year and hold local events to show their support.
