Albertans are encouraged to show appreciation for seniors and recognize the important contributions seniors make to our province.
Each year, Seniors’ Week is declared in the first week of June. Seniors’ Week 2021 is June 7-13 and will be kicked off with a provincial launch event co-hosted by Seniors Outreach Program Society on June 7. The Provincial Launch event will take place virtually for the first time and Albertans from all across the province can attend to join together to celebrate seniors and to ensure they feel valued by friends, loved ones, and all Albertans.
Throughout Seniors’ Week, hundreds of events (virtual and possibly in-person celebrations, dependent on public health restrictions) will take place across the province. Albertans of all ages can attend an event, catch up with the seniors in their lives, or thank those who have made a difference in their community. Seniors’ Week is a wonderful opportunity to recognize and celebrate seniors and their enormous contributions to our families, communities and our province. Seniors have provided a lifetime of service to their families, friends and neighbors, and helped build Alberta into the great province it is today.
The Government of Alberta offers an online Events Calendar that can be used to post or view special events for seniors.
