Positive Aging Campaign
October 1, 2020 - National Seniors Day
October 1st is National Seniors Day. This is an occasion where all Canadians can join in celebrating older adults across Canada - whether a parent, a co-worker, a neighbour, or a friend. National Seniors Day recognizes the lasting contributions older adults make to their families, communities and society as a whole. October 1st is also recognized as International Day of Older Persons.
Each year to celebrate National Seniors Day, the City of Richmond Seniors Services coordinates a campaign to showcase positive images of seniors in Richmond with a goal of reducing ageism and existing stereotypes. Each year a different theme is chosen and posters with positive messages are displayed at community centres and other locations in Richmond.
