Seniors' Directorate Attends Campbell River Diversity Health Fair
On Saturday, August 13, 2011, the Campbell River Immigrant Welcome Centre hosted its first Diversity Health Fair, with funding from the provincial government’s WelcomeBC. The 64 exhibitors at the fair included the Seniors’ Directorate, which distributed government information and resources focused on healthy living for older adults, Aboriginal people, and newcomers to B.C.
The Diversity Health Fair attracted some 850 people from northern and central Vancouver Island communities, providing an excellent opportunity to share information and receive input from hundreds of fair-goers. Seniors’ Directorate staff were also pleased to connect with organizations like the Campbell River Seniors’ Centre Society, the BC Elders Communication Centre Society, and the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Providers of BC (AMSSA).
